Watch Momma’s Green Day and beabadoobee-inspired video for Lucky

    Brooklyn-based alt.rock duo Momma have shared their video for new single Lucky, and revealed that the clip is heavily influenced by Green Day’s video for 1996 Insomniac-era single Walking Contradiction, as well as the “the fun and etherealness of certain Beabadoobee videos.” 

    Directed by Emma Penrose and Zack Shorrosh, Lucky is taken from the band’s forthcoming album, Household Name, which revolves around “the rise and fall of the rock star” and references alt.rock artists such as Nirvana, Pavement, Smashing Pumpkins, Veruca Salt, and the Breeders.

    Speaking about the video, Emma Penrose says, “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. 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.”
