Momma, the Brooklyn-based band led by singers/guitarists Allegra Weingarten and Etta Friedman, today announce their debut UK shows and release their anthemic new single “Rockstar”, another slice of infectiously poppy grunge that again marks the band out as one of this year’s most undoubtedly exciting prospects.

Its accompanying must-watch video – directed by LA-based duo Batshit! (filmmakers Ben Joyner & Henry Drayton) – is pure fun, brimming with unbridled energy as it pays tongue-in-cheek tribute to Friedman and Weingarten’s rock music comedy favourites like Josie and the PussycatsSchool of Rock and Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny.

“Etta and I wanted to write a song about making it big, and becoming rock stars. We didn’t want to take anything too seriously, lyrically, or musically. We just wanted the song to sound big,” says Weingarten. “We thought it would be cool to have our own little rockumentary condensed in a 3-minute music video. It’s also kind of like a manifestation – I think we shamelessly want all of these things to happen in our careers.” “Rockstar” is the band’s latest single following November’s dynamic, energizing “Medicine,” their first for new label home Lucky Number.

Produced and mixed by bassist Aron Kobayashi Ritch, these two songs mark Friedman & Weingarten’s first tracks written and recorded in the band’s new hometown of Brooklyn, New York.
