For their first EP The Mamas wrote their songs together with big names of the country. Two songs of the EP (Touch The Sky & Let It Be) were released before, which means we get a total of four brand new tracks. Three group songs and one song from LouLou, Ashley, and Dinah solo complete the EP. Their Melodifestivalen winning song “Move” is not included, but we know this song by heart anyway 😉
The EP opens with the group song Touch The Sky. This song was released just a week ago. It’s uplifting and powerful. A modern production makes it the perfect opener. The song is written by Ashley Haynes and Jonas Thander. Produced by Robin Stjernberg.
You Got Me is the second song on the EP and the first solo song. For this song, it is LouLou’s time to shine on her own. The song starts very minimalistic and it is mostly just her voice. For the pre-chorus beats set in, who build-up for the chorus and during the song. Emotions carry the song and it has a magical feeling. It sounds very personal and at the same time as everybody could relate to the lyrics and feelings. The song is written by LouLou Lamotte and Jonas Thander. Produced by Joy Deb.
The third track is the lead single off the EP, Let It Be. It is the power-pop song we need from The Mamas to survive our daily lives. The song makes you dance and sing-a-long in just some seconds and the best thing is that it makes you happy. Written by Herman Gardarfve, Melanie Wehbe, and Patrik Jean. Produced by Herman Gardarfve.
Next up is Dinah’s solo song called The Lows. The beginning of the song has a quiet beat and Dinah’s amazing voice with it. For the chorus, the song gets this dominant beat which makes you wanna clap along to it and lifts the whole song to a totally different level. Further in the song, I get a choir feeling and this whole song will do everything to not let you fall into some lows. Written by Dinah Yonas Manna, Erik Zettervall and Richard Nilsson. Produced by Richard Nilsson and Erik Zettervall.
The fifth song on the EP is the final solo track Whitney In The 80s by Ash. This song stands out from the EP. It’s THE disco banger. Moving to it is a MUST. The song has so much energy and positive feelings. It is the perfect song for a night full of dancing, for a run outside, or for the next Zumba class. Modern production and Ash’s powerful voice make this song a certified BOP. Written by Ash Haynes and Jonas Thander. Produced by Martin Eriksson Sandmark.
The final song of the EP is the title track Tomorrow Is Waiting. For this song, we get the total Mamas feeling. It is not easy to lift someone up and make you dance with the power of music, but The Mamas are perfect in exactly that. Their vocals are just flawless and while the song is not the biggest power bop anthem, it is pure, emotional, and personal. It will make you dance and you will sing to the song. Tomorrow Is Waiting is written by Joy Deb and LouLou Lamotte. Produced by Joy Deb.
“Everything Will Be Ok” are the last lyrics of the EP and the perfect ending for the positive influence force that is the EP from The Mamas. These six songs will make you dance, forget the world, feel positive vibes, and make your day better. It is everything we hoped the EP to be. With the solo songs, we get a more personal feeling for each one of The Mamas. The group songs are as powerful as always and together they are just unstoppable.
- The Lows – I totally love the feeling of this song. It is about a very important topic to have or be someone to get you or someone out of the lows and lift them up. The chorus is pure, catchy, and powerful. Love it! They all did such a brilliant job! So proud and happy with this EP!
- Tomorrow Is Waiting – In these group songs, they always find the perfect way that everyone has time to shine and moreover, add unique pieces to the whole song, and make it perfect. I love the lyrics and the beat of this whole song. This is 100% The Mamas energy and uplifting and brilliant as always. It says that it is ok to have a bad day, but tomorrow is waiting and the sun will shine for you. “Everything will be ok”! This song is a whole mood!
