The 90s were a magical time for alternative rock, with more genres and subgenres than you could shake a plaid shirt at…but one of our favorite formulas were vocal duo matched with loud guitars. Think of bands like Veruca Salt or That Dog. Brooklyn band Momma have hit that same glorious equation with their new single Rockstar.
Slated to be released as part of their Polyvinyl debut later this spring, Rockstar has the band envisioning what it would be like if and when they hit it big. Allegra Weingarten of Momma explains “Etta (Friedman) and I wanted to write a song about making it big, and becoming rockstars. We didn’t want to take anything too seriously, lyrically or musically. We just wanted the song to sound big, It’s also kind of like a manifestation – I think we shamelessly want all of these things to happen in our careers.”
Momma will be touring through September with some dates with Wet Leg and some with Snail Mail.
