With Brooklyn-based Etta Friedman and Allegra Weingarten at the wheel, Aron Kobayashi Ritch's production savvy would subsequently be enlisted - a collaboration that culminated in the ambitiously-themed second record Two of Me. Cast through the lens of formative LA origins as well as personal highs and lows, Household Name sets itself apart from Two of Me's emphasis on fictional snapshots and moral judgement - the Lucky Number-signed pair plying a more open insight into the intricacies of their own individual background and professional high jinks. Momma continue to amalgamate nudging humour, sincerity and stylistic self-awareness in this respect.
The decidedly problematic Jack Kerouac was at least correct when he wrote, "The road must eventually lead to the whole world." (Perhaps Finding Nemo's "all drains lead to the ocean" is preferable.) Household Name, the third record from Brooklyn-based duo Momma, orients itself against this theory ….
Momma have come a long way, both literally and figuratively. Opening 2020 as a duo in Los Angeles, they closed 2021 as a Brooklyn based phenomenon , a string of urgent indie rock singles cementing their position as one of North America's most-tipped quantities. Raw and ragged but blessed with an innate thirst for melody, new album 'Household Name' marks the completion of one journey and the beginning of another, a series of snappy vignettes that speak of youth, close creative bonds, and mutually shared ambitions.
