After many excellent compositions, such as She Got Me High, 12 Rounds, Del Mar, Misery, Sober, Immature, and Favorite Boy, Baltimore-based artist Plant Dad returns with another superb track that will appeal to all the fans of grunge sound. MoMA explores the fundamentals of the beforementioned genre, but you’ll be surprised by the amount of finest properties borrowed from the other complementary music genres incorporated into it. The song continuously levitates between the retro and contemporary sonic maneuvers, but you’ll hear how Plant Dad leans much more towards that modern, ear-appealing, cathartic ambiance. Therefore, don’t be surprised if you stumble upon the elements of alternative, garage rock, indie rock, shoegaze, and pop punk. Plant Dad thoughtfully implemented these genres, so you’ll hear how they accentuate, enhance or decorate particular segments of this track.
You’ll notice that pleasant shoegaze vibes while listening to MoMa. Plant Dad is unquestionably a big fan of the genre, but he made a wise move and has not overwhelmed these leads, themes, melodies, chord progressions, and riffs with too much reverb, delay, or echo effect. The artist paid much more attention to the right amounts of fuzz, so you’ll hear that thick, raw, abrasive, dirty layer of distortion lurking around. The heavily distorted ambiance perfectly matches the calm, relaxing, high-pitched, ear-appealing vocal harmonies. Like the remainder of the orchestrations included in this composition, Plant Dad also paid a lot of attention to the rhythm section and cleverly assembled all the beats, fills, accentuations, and other percussive maneuvers that define the tempo, groove, and dynamics of MoMa. This song resonates with a unique ambiance that will suit anyone who’s profoundly into grunge, garage rock, alternative, indie, and shoegaze. Plant Dad once again proved he’s a highly creative songwriter, musician, composer, and producer who knows how to assemble and record mesmerizing songs stacked with many sonic delicacies. MoMa is available on all streaming platforms.
