Pulling from memories of a childhood celebrity crush, in Mom Rock’s latest single “Close Your Eyes” is all about realizing that some fantasies are just not meant to be. This is the second single off the band’s forthcoming album, ‘Now That’s What I Call Mom Rock’ which was produced by Sean O’Keefe (Fall Out Boy, Plain White T’s, Beach Bunny).
You see someone from afar and fall in love. Without knowing who this person really is, you dream up a whole future together. This kid essentially obsesses over a popstar, meets her, and she’s like, ‘You’re a kid. I’m not in love with you. That would be weird.’ We’d been covering ‘Teenage Dirtbag,’ and it’s the reverse sentiment. It’s a ‘sad in love’ song.
Originally formed at Berklee, this Nashville-based Powerpop trio is tearing up the indie scene with a sound that evokes iconic 90’s rock bands like Weezer and Cake. Since their 2017 debut they’ve racked up millions of streams, rocked packed houses and cut catchy anthems that landed them a feature in Rolling Stone Magazine. Make sure to keep an eye out for their upcoming LP set for a Fall 2023 release date!
