Momma Return With New Song ‘Bang Bang’

    Momma have shared a new track called ‘Bang Bang’, their first material since the release of Household Name last year. Etta Friedman and Allegra Weingarten teamed up with producer/bassist Aron Kobayashi Ritch to write and record the song following an extended American tour. Give it a listen below.

    “Allegra and I ended up getting COVID at the same time, so we decided to isolate, get drunk, and write together,” Friedman explained in a statement. “Within a night we had demoed a hot sounding song about great sex.” Weingarten added: “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.”

    Momma are set to embark on a tour of Europe and the UK this month in support of Alex G. In the summer, they’ll opening for Weezer and Modest Mouse on the just-announced Indie Rock Roadtrip! Revisit our Artist Spotlight interview with Momma.
