Bio

Your Mum Friends are back! Coming off of their sold-out debut single release ‘Rails’, Mum Friends continue to weave through the (all too relatable) post break-up haircuts and the strenuous task of being in your 20s in the 2020s with their new release 'Woke Fuckboy'.

Crowds have been yelling along since the band broke into the scene in December 2019, having since played alongside TOWNS, Teenage Joans, RAT!hammock and Cry Club. Now lovingly supported by Vanessa Marousopoulos (Keeskea) and Annie Siegmann (Seabass) this no man, no meat eating, all queer band solidified their place in the genre of 'Australian Women Who Have F***ing Had It'.

This release sees Mum Friends lean right into the heartbreak of dating a Woke Fuckboy; someone who seems switched on but ultimately… is a big Fuckboy. Crunchy guitars and breakneck drums paired with multi-part harmonies build up over the energetic track through the signature Mum Friends dynamic shifts, the peaks of the chorus and the valley of the bridge. You can’t help but sing along.

you've channeled the frustration and rage of dealing with tiny-beanie-wearing gaslighters into an incredibly feel good song. it's not an easy brief, but you smashed it out of the park. can someone pop me on a flight to Adelaide so I can experience the catharsis of belting that chorus alongside Mum Friends live?

I hate this song, only because it KEEPS getting stuck in my head but I can't comfortably sing it out loud around people without getting strange looks? This is a heat seeking missile speeding unwaveringly towards woke fuckboys nationwide. GET 'EM MUM FRIENDS.
