New York-based four piece Momma have released new single “Medicine“, their first single of the year and first new music since debut album Two Of Me was released last year. The new single also comes alongside the announcement that the band have signed to Lucky Number (HMLTD, Dream Wife, Jay Som).
Combining the melancholy of 90’s grunge through the downbeat riff with elements of indie rock and dream-pop thanks to the doubled-up vocals of Etta Friedman and Allegra Weingarten. You become lost in the captivating, comforting and subtly alluring sound that the band create. You feel as though you are hooked onto every moment just like the medicine they sing of thanks to the subtle riff changes and melodic sways. Imagine soccer mommy and Nirvana blended into a pill of pure bliss.
Produced and mixed by bassist Aron Kobayashi Ritch, it also marks Momma’s first song demoed and written in New York as a 4-piece of singers/guitarists Etta Friedman and Allegra Weingarten, bassist Kobayashi Ritch, and drummer Zach CapittiFenton. The band explained: “The two guitar riffs were written by Etta and Allegra about a year before we actually brought it to the full band. When we wrote the first verse, we realised it was one of the first times we couldn’t write about heartbreak – we were both in very loving relationships. We wanted to write about that feeling of just being addicted to someone, and how someone else’s company can really feel like a drug.”
