It seems Bring Me The Horizon were putting their heaviest foot forward for their new album amo, because unlike its first two singles 'Mantra' and 'Wonderful Life', its newest singles 'medicine' and now 'mother tongue' have gone down an entirely alt-pop road.
The song premiered on the Beats 1 show Zane Lowe's World Record, where frontman Oli Sykes also explained the song's meaning:
"It's probably the most gushing, out there, just straight up love song we've ever written. This was one of the easier ones to write because it was positive. It's about when I first met my new wife and she's from Brazil, and she didn't speak so much English. She talked a lot better than my Portuguese, but from the very start, we had a really, really strong connection and it was just a crazy time. And this song's just talking about those experiences, which they just stick in my head. So, that was really one of the easier ones to write about."
