Following April single Speeding 72, Momma have just dropped another excellent new track from their upcoming album Household Name.
Entitled Lucky, the shimmering song comes accompanied by a video directed by Emma Penrose and Zack Shorrosh, which pays tribute to the "fun and etherealness of certain beabadoobee videos", as well as the storyline to Green Day's hilarious 1996 video for Walking Contradiction.
“We didn’t want to get too cheesy and literal so Etta [Friedman, vocals/guitar] suggested some ideas from the Green Day Walking Contradiction video as well as the fun and etherealness of certain Beabadoobee videos,” explains Emma. “In the end, we feel like the video displays how much fun it was to film – everyone involved was a friend of either Zack and Emma’s or Etta and Allegra [Weingarten, vocals/guitar]’s, so the project feels very personal and lighthearted.”
Meanwhile, Etta explains of the meaning behind Lucky: “I wrote it after my significant other and I had to spend an unknown amount of time apart from each other on opposite sides of the country. I wanted it to feel anthemic, like a sappy and sentimental love song, but I still wanted to speak on how exciting it feels to know you found true treasure with someone you are in love with.”
