    Through it all is a patient sense of comfort and understanding, retaining the playfulness of their previous efforts, the seriousness of being a rock musician in the 2020s, and the approachable air that ties it all together.

    Pleasingly self-referential, ‘Household Name’ is a joyous selection, a record that melds together its alt-rock influences to locate a distinctive voice, pitting intricate instrumentation against some killer pop hooks. Looks like we may just have found our summer soundtrack.

    The ambition on show throughout ‘Household Name’ is to be lauded in itself, and Momma deserve to be viewed like the rockstars they sing of.

    Sweet-voiced grrrl-angst vocals meet grunge dynamics; non-committal Veruca Salt do post-Nirvana loud bit/miserable bit. I Mean, it's fine, but... meh. [Summer 2022, p.79]

Momma have been building up to this album with a veryIf you are a fan of 90s alt rock and grunge you are going to love this album. Momma have been building up to this album with a very underappreciated sophomore album (Two of Me) and have upped their production game as well as their songwriting. An easy album to keep on repeat all day. Expand
