Los Angeles songwriters Etta Friedman (19) and Allegra

Weingarten (20) began their bedroom pop two piece,

Momma, soon after meeting in high school and bonding

over a mutual love of LA’s DIY scene. Inspired by the

scene surrounding local all ages venues like The Smell

and Pehrspace, the two started the recording project

as a way to write about and reflect on their

experiences as young women growing up today. Momma

captures the spirit of performers before them like Liz

Phair and The Softies, juxtaposing bright

sonic textures with ominous vocal performances

and complex subject matters.
