Mom Rock Hits A Bullseye
The “Golden Age Of Music” or as Gen Z now calls it..”Dad
Rock” it seemed for a long time it was a sound and feeling that
was replaced with rap and anything but actual music and lyrics.
Some have made the attempt to change that, and by ‘Some’
mean the one and only three piece band ironically and hillariously
called ‘Mom Rock’. This show stopping band was formed in 2017
at a basement party while they attended Boston’s Berklee College
of Music and the rest is history. Since then, a few things have
changed a new faces was added, while another departed but one
thing is for sure, the party has been going strong and Mom Rock
is making some serious impact on the scene right now. Even
receiving a tender embrace and a watchful eye from Rolling Stone
Magazine, in the Hot issue on June 30th 2022, calling them “One
of America's best young bands before graduating college.” The
hot list issue about the band was a perfect description and
brought a shining light onto these new mothers of rock.
There are huge things on the horizon for Mom Rock, another
round at the five day, open water rock fest “Rock The Boat”, a
spot on stage at ‘Shaky Knees Alternative Music Fest’ alongside
some BIG names like; The Killers, Greta Van Fleet, The Yeah,
Yeah, Yeah’s, The Lumineers, Hozier and the list goes on.
On February 10th 2023 they dropped their newest single
since the 2022 release of their out of the park, home run of an EP
‘Bullseye’, is an explosive but groovy ballad that brings you right
to the dance floor of the Troubadour in 1984. (The band and
myself included weren’t there to experience that, but i can only
imagine that this is what is felt like) The bass line to kick it off sets
the perfect rhythmic vibe for the song, a happy and toe stomping
guitar riff to join and then to top it off the jaw dropping vocals, an
indie sound with a classic twist to it. Alternative Press dissects the
bands sound saying “Mom Rock is one of the most electric bands
in the alternative scene right now, so it’s no surprise that they’re
exemplary for 80’s -derived influence.The group brings nostalgia
from multiple angles, scratching both those power-pop and rock.”
So, there you have it folks. It’s Mom Rock’s world and we’re just
lucky enough to live in it, I personally can’t wait to see what they
do next. I don’t think I have ever hit a follow button as fast as I did
during my listening research on spotify.
This is just the beginning for these guys, and I couldn’t think
of anyone more deserving of the spotlight.
