Brooklyn-based band Momma have shared a new song, “Bang Bang.” The single is out now via Polyvinyl/Lucky Number. Listen below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates, including shows opening for Alex G and other shows supporting Weezer and Modest Mouse.

Momma is led by songwriters Etta Friedman and Allegra Weingarten. For “Bang Bang” they worked with producer/bassist Aron Kobayashi Ritch to write and record the track.

“Allegra and I ended up getting COVID at the same time, so we decided to isolate, get drunk, and write together,” Friedman explains in a press release. “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’s most recent album, Household Name, came out last year via Polyvinyl.
