With three albums under its proverbial belt, Momma shares its fiery new single “Bang Bang” (Polyvinyl Record Co./Lucky Number Music). “Bang Bang” expands upon the band’s sound and, as always, demands repeat listens. Following tours supporting Death Cab for Cutie earlier this year and Alex G next month, the alt-rock breakouts have also announced they’ll be supporting the initial leg of Weezer’s summer U.S. tour with Modest Mouse. Other upcoming performances include festival debuts at Coachella and the Kilby Court Block Party.
Momma: Allegra and I ended up getting COVID at the same time, so we decided to isolate, get drunk, and write together,” Friedman explains. “Within a night we had demoed a hot-sounding song about great sex.” Weingarten adds: “We wanted to write something lyrically different than anything else we’d done – just super literal and crude. We shared it with Aron and he sent us back a new version with a lot of added extra production: drums, bass, synths, acoustic guitar, etc. It felt totally different and fresh. The finished song has a lot of classic Momma – heavy guitars and catchy melodies – but packaged in a different form. It feels immediate, like a whole new sound for the band.”
Additionally, the band will playaGoldenvoice Presents headlining LA’s The Roxy on April 13th; a current itinerary is listed below and tickets are on sale now HERE.
