    Prepare to meet Momma: Today, the Brooklyn indie rock duo have announced their next album Household Name. It’s due for release on July 1st and marks their debut on Polyvinyl. As a preview, co-bandleaders Etta Friedman and Allegra Weingarten have shared the great single “Speeding 72” and its accompanying music video.

    Indebted to alt-rock greats like Nirvana, Pavement, Smashing Pumpkins, Veruca Salt, and The Breeders, Momma make fuzzed-out guitar music that feels both warmly familiar and excitingly new. Household Name was also Friedman and Weingarten’s first time recording in a proper studio, giving their heavy riffs the hi-fi clarity they deserve without compromising the band’s ’90s-inspired grit. Pre-orders are ongoing.

    “Speeding 72” is a tried-and-true summer jam, a breezy song about driving in a car intended for driving in a car. But despite its borderline hackneyed subject matter, “Speeding 72” is chock-full of sticky hooks as Friedman and Weingarten’s airy vocals urge you to join the ride. “Hey, I heard you’re coming from a complicated place at best/ I know a cure, put the pedal to the metal, lay it all to rest,” they sing. Watch the Zach Stone-directed music video for “Speeding 72” below, and remember to always wear your seatbelt.

    Additionally, Momma will hit the road for a North American tour this year with stints opening for Snail Mail and Illuminati Hotties, as well as a handful of headlining shows at venues like Los Angeles’ The Echo and Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg.

    Tickets for the headlining dates go on sale Friday, April 22nd at 10:00 a.m. local time, and you can get them at Ticketmaster. Find Momma’s tour schedule and details for Household Name below the jump.
