The Mothermold is a mother-and-daughter rock duo.
Visual artist Lalena Fisher, formerly of NYC’s
The Color Guard and The Hissyfits,
plays guitar while aspiring doctor Wonder Girl kicks serious butt
on drums. They named their project after the supportive outer shell of a
sculptural mold, as a metaphor for their relationship.
The Mothermold is an experiment in superimposing a mother-daughter
bond on the stereotypically male “rock band” trope.
Both sing and write the songs, some of which are more grown-up and others are more
kid-driven. The Mothermold’s sound fuses metal, punk, prog and pop,
with musings on space, genetics, bad hotels, heroines, and growing up.
