Momma releases ‘Bang Bang’
Alt-rock breakouts Momma release new single ‘Bang Bang.’
Looking for a new alt-rock addiction? Check out Momma’s explosive new single ‘Bang Bang.’ Between tours supporting Death Cab For Cutie and Alex G, alt-rock breakouts Momma have released their fiery new single, ‘Bang Bang.’ Songwriters Etta Friedman and Allegra Weingarten collaborated with producer/bassist Aron Kobayashi Ritch to write and record the track after getting home last fall from their first-ever North American headline tour.
“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.”
Earlier this week, Momma announced they’ll be supporting the initial leg of Weezer’s Indie Rock Roadtrip summer U.S. tour with Modest Mouse. Other upcoming performances include an overseas tour supporting Alex G and festival debuts at Coachella and the Kilby Court Block Party. Additionally, the band will play a Goldenvoice Presents headlining LA’s The Roxy on April 13th.
‘Bang Bang’ is out now.
