MOM - "Don't Leave With My Heart"
Yeah! MOM is back! Back in June, the Swedish trio absolutely blew me away with a debut single that was as pop as pop can be. In advance of a debut album titled Pleasure Island releasing on September 22nd, MOM proudly presents its second single. "Don't Leave With My Heart" is a more than satisfying follow-up to the pop smash "Tonight". Again MOM occupies the power pop territory that runs through '70s glam and bubblegum. This mid-tempo rocker delivers sugary sweet melodies and a chorus that is bound to be stuck in your head all day. On the flip, "Cry No More Tears" is a little snappier and more in the vein of new wave pop. This is an excellent pair of songs from one of the best new bands out there. If you're a fan of Racey, Nick Gilder, Milk 'N' Cookies, The Arrows, etc., you ought to be excited for the arrival of Pleasure Island in a few weeks' time. I'll keep you posted!
