They certainly have a curious name, “Strong Asian Mothers.” There’s no other explanation than to assume the three members of the London-based rock band, Kalim Patel, Amer Chadha-Patel, and Josh Stadlen all have strong Asian mothers.

In America, the term is tiger mother, and there is a whole book dedicated to them. As for the band, they’ve released the first single from their upcoming EP “Lynx Africa”. The name of the single is “More Than I.”

“More Than I” enjoys a healthy dose of blasts from a trumpet and brass section, as Patel sings in a somber tone about striving and achievement (like a true tiger cub): “The harder I push/ The more that I live/ The years that it took/ To be understood/ The harder I strive/ The more that I/ The hunger I hide the more that I.”

The “Lynx Africa” EP is due out on May 20.
