Mom + Pop – MP333 (2018) US
The first track off the album, "I Was A Fool", has gained over a million streams and received press praise from The New York Times, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, Pitchfork, MTV, NPR and more. The follow-up track, "Crisis Fest" is a call to millennial arms, melding pop shimmer and drive with the personal and political.
