she studied printmaking at the Lamar Dodd School of Art. Now a quartet, their debut album 'When You
Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired,' released via Grand Jury Music and Wichita Recordings, has earned
the young band high praise from the press, including from NPR Music ('First Listen'), The New York
Times, Pitchfork, The Guardian, NME ('Radar'), and Q Magazine, among many others, while the band
themselves have been included on numerous ‘Musicians to know’ lists for 2016 including from
Stereogum, Vulture, Spotify, Paper Magazine and others. Comprised of eight original songs - the
majority of which were written while Leschper was finishing art school in early 2014 - Mothers’ debut LP
is an introduction to the foundations of the young band, a snapshot of a particular period of their
genesis that maps both where they began and where they are heading.
Jared Collins and Kimberly Collins started the group in Athens, Georgia, wanting to move in a heavier direction than that taken by their previous project, k i d s. After moving to Atlanta in 2015, Jared and Kimberly began playing with Jonathan Merenivitch and Adrian Benedykt Świtoń, each of whom brought a distinct sensibility as songwriters in their own right for local band Shepherds. Garrett Burke of Art Contest and Tug signed on soon after.
Danger Mouse selected the band's track “Tell Me About It,” featured on an EP released in early 2016, for his 30th Century Records Compilation Volume 1. In August, a performance at Atlanta’s Mammal Gallery got the attention of Bradford Cox and led to the band joining Deerhunter on a tour of the United States. Live, Jock Gang embraces a flexible aesthetic. Song structures shift, instrumental parts are fluid. Each show brings out a new aspect of the band’s sound.
