Track Of The Day: 45ACIDBABIES – ‘Mommy’s Favourite 1’

Following the success of last year’s ‘3 (Walk With Me)’, and having shared a stage with the likes of Sleigh Bells and Blood Red Shoes, Dutch garage punks 45ACIDBABIES have now returned with a buoyant new single.

Propelled by a vibrant, playful energy, ‘Mommy’s Favourite 1′ races with swirling layers of sound creating an instantly infectious, danceable cacophony. As scuzzy, electro-driven hooks race alongside the soaring sultry power of Sophia De Geus’ vocals, a psychedelic haze ripples, creating an anthemic slice of indie-pop reminiscent of the likes of PINS. Futuristic, yet with hints of ’80s-infused nostalgia, it’s an uplifting sonic fusion, injecting a much needed colourful groove into our ears. Of the track, the band explain:

“… (it’s) about an Odysee sirene island like situation that refers to the situation we’re all in right now. The COVID-19 life we’re living. It’s sang by ‘the mother’ who kidnaps lost people in the streets and takes them home to submerge them into a hypnotising party that will make you feel like you’ve escaped the real depressing life for a moment. Everything seems all fun and games. The perfect night. But then you find out you can never leave.”


Mommy’s Favourite 1‘ is out now.
