Mattress Food is the brainchild of songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Sami Rahman, with the addition of Wallace Gerdy on lead guitar, Paul O’Connell on bass, and Adam Figurelle on drums.
Think Pavement covering Oasis songs and that’s the vibe. In live shows, they are a force of nature, and are hoping to book a show at your nearest library or book fair. The band has recently dropped its debut studio single, titled “Burn Yr Idols”. A single that you guys can indeed discover below!
On this release, the band comments:
“Burn Yr Idols is basically an indictment of toxic behavior – racism, homophobia, toxic masculinity, transphobia, etc. It was written in 2017, in response to the wave of sexual misconduct allegations of well-known figures. I think that we need to seriously re-evaluate the past and the way it has been viewed and taught, and I like the idea of rebirth through fire, like a phoenix (shoutout Harry Potter).”
