Godmother - Pop Live Act in Berlin

Godmother Short Info

GODMOTHER is a transgenre band that plays “oldies but newbies”, finding that middle ground between the strange and the strangely familiar. Their first anti-hit was “Theme Song from James Bond 23”, amassing over 200,000 views on YouTube (albeit mostly from pissed-off Adele fans). One year later, GODMOTHER released a 7″ single and music video for “These Things Take Time”, which No Fear Of Pop praised as “exuberant, luscious, and delightfully kinky… effectively smashed the competition for 2013's greatest lyric.” Meanwhile, they’ve been performing everywhere from dingy basement venues to prestigious arts festivals, even a sex club and a vodka distillery, sharing the stage with the likes of Peaches and JD Samson.

Never discuss politics, sex or religion. Instead, write pop songs about them! That's the righteous approach taken by GODMOTHER, a transgenre band based in Berlin that plays “oldies but newbies”, finding that middle ground between the strange and the strangely familiar.

GODMOTHER's first recorded output was “Theme Song from James Bond 23”, scoring an international hit in the loosest sense possible, amassing over 200,000 views on YouTube (albeit mostly from pissed-off Adele fans).

Meanwhile, Joey (vocals, software), Rocco (cello) and Tranny (sax) continue playing shows, from dingy basement venues to prestigious arts festivals, even a sex club and a vodka distillery, sharing the stage with the likes of Peaches, JD Samson and Light Asylum.
