Momma have returned with the release of single ‘Bang Bang’.
It’s the first new material since the release of their album ‘Household Name’ last year.
Songwriters Etta Friedman and Allegra Weingarten collaborated with producer/bassist Aron Kobayashi Ritch to write and record the track after getting home last year from an extended American 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.”
Momma will soon be hitting the road for an UK/EU run supporting Alex G across March and April.
