Dear Laz - I just wanted you to know how happy I am that you and Bubblegum Lemonade are back with new music; I feel like it’s been a few years since we last spent time together. There’s something so timeless about the way you construct your songs that inevitably leaves them stuck in my brain. On first listen, people might overlook the way you add in these textured vocal harmonies for emphasis in “Our Mother’s House;” it’s so light that one might barely notice if they’re staring out the window nostalgically…as many of your fans are likely to do. I’m so excited that Desperately Seeking Sunshine is right around the corner (via Matinee Recordings), but I’m even more thankful that you tossed in some exclusive B-sides on this EP. Anyways, just wanted to reach out and tell you I love your work.   --Austin Town Hall
To our way of thinking it has been too long, way too long, since Laz McCluskey, aka Bubblegum Lemonade, has released some new music. Fortunately, Laz has resolved the matter before we had to have a word with him about the lack of production. In fact, the Glasgow musician is making up for lost time with a new album titled Desperately Seeking Sunshine due for an April release via Matinee Recordings, and preceded by the three-track Our Mother's House EP. The digital-only EP is a prequel of sorts, with the title track also doing dual duty as the first single from the album. The two B-sides are only available on the EP however. If you are a long-time reader you know what to expect -- sweet melodies, sharp hooks and plenty of jangle. And Laz delivers what we expect every time.   --When You Motor Away
Yes! He’s back! 3 great indiepop songs, all with Lawrence “Laz” McCluskey strong melodic trademark pop sound. The nostalgic “Our Mother’s House” is the lead single from the forthcoming new album ‘Desperately Seeking Sunshine’.   --Eardrums
The 'Our Mother’s House' EP is the prequel to the forthcoming album on Matinée Recordings titled 'Desperately Seeking Sunshine' which is out next month. The title track appears on the said long player whilst the two additional tracks 'Barely Regal' and 'When Life Gives You Lemons' are exclusive to this EP. Musically the band are still producing, as ever!, 1960s bubblegum pop nuggets and this EP is no exception. It’s available digitally from the label or via the band.   --Records I Like
The great Glasgow band fronted by Laz has a new release out, a 3 song EP that I think is unmissable! “Our Mother’s House” EP was released on March 15th and includes the title track, “Barely Regal” and “When Life Gives You Lemons”. Top stuff!   --Cloudberry blog
Crema de la fina desde Escocia una vez más, en esta ocasión de la mano del talentoso Lawrence ‘Laz’ McCluskey y su más que infeccioso proyecto Bubblegum Lemonade, que acaba de editar el EP Our mother’s house (2019), a través del recomendable sello Matinée Records, como aperitivo del álbum Desperately Seeking Sunshine, que verá la luz este mismo mes. Otra colección de pildorazos de bubblegum pop sesentero que hará las delicias de los paladares más exigentes gracias a sus dulces melodías, sus pegadizas armonías vocales y unas cálidas guitarras herederas de The Byrds o de sus compatriotas Teenage Fanclub. Tomando su nombre de un álbum de Mama Cass, el escocés debutó hace una década con el EP Ten Years Younger (2008) y bien a través de Bubblegum Lemonade o de su otro proyecto, Strawberry Whiplash, sigue demostrando su querencia por las melodías guitarreras, como podemos comprobar en el homónimo single de adelanto de su nuevo EP, que viene acompañado de dos caras B (Barely legal y When life give you lemons), no incluidas en el álbum y de una notable calidad. A la espera del estreno de las nuevas doce canciones del disco, nos dejamos llevar por la indiscutible infecciosidad de Our mother’s house, que lleva varios días incrustada en nuestro cerebro sin remisión. Soleados sonidos para esta primavera que acaba de arrancar. Disfruten.   --Velvety Blog (Song of the Week)
