In the dimly illuminated depths of ‘The Cranker,’ a well-known cavern in Adelaide City, you’ll encounter a band that demands attention – Church Moms. Composed of Bridget Hodder on guitar and vocals, Laura Brown on keys, synth, and vocals, and Andrew Goulding on drums and vocals, they fill the room with infectious banter, and the ability to rile up even the humblest in the crowd.
With the release of their debut self-titled album in late June, this self-proclaimed Queercore band is starting to gain recognition nationwide. Driven by symbolic synth, powerful drums, layered acoustics, and thought-provoking lyrics, they keep everyone on their toes awaiting the next chorus.
One of the standout tracks from their latest album is ‘Leather,’ a captivating soft-rock tune that pays tribute to the complexities of heartbreak and growing older. On the opposite end of the spectrum, their iconic Australian-themed punk rock anthem, ‘Big Dick Energy,’ offers a gritty perspective on the double standards women encounter. They’re also serving up tracks like ‘Cigarette,’ where every word strikes a chord with our inner punk musings on longing and love.
