Indie glam-rock quartet Blame Candy are back with a catchy new single that’s as glittery and eccentric as the band itself. With satirical lyrics as memorable as its melody is infectious, “Mommy Daddy Money”, and its B-side, “Power Player,” are emblematic of all of the exuberance and flare with which the band have become synonymous, both in their recordings and energetic live shows.

Of the single itself, frontman Chris Greatti claims that, “‘Mommy Daddy Money’ is the 2019 dance rock anthem for the bitter poor kids,” “Power Player” being their, “first foray into polyrhythmic prog opus territory, complete with non-stop shred guitar.” Also thrown into the mix is a healthy dose of the band’s eclectic influences—both classic and contemporary—from Van Halen and Queen to Radiohead and Tame Impala. 

Lovers of all things glam can stream “Mommy Daddy Money” below. As Greatti himself suggests, “Turn these joints up louder than your ears can handle—without hesitation.”
