MOM’S HOME DELIVERS AN INCREDIBLY INFECTIOUS, NERVOUSLY NUANCED TAKE ON DEPRESSION AND DISSOCIATION WITH NEW TRACK “STOP, GO”

The musical world of dreampop, more than most other genres, affords artists the ability to produce a unique song that genuinely comes across like nothing else in the industry — where creativity thrives and anyone typically on the “outside” can thrive to their full potential. Such is the case with L.A.-based transgender multi-instrumentalist Charlotte Avery a.k.a Mom’s Home and her latest lovely musical concoction, “Stop, Go.” As one first listens to the track, it sounds like a typical pop song full of smooth bass a la Doja Cat and distinct vocals a la Kirsty MacColl. Yet as the song progresses, it becomes clear very quickly that it’s less of a figurative escape from reality and more of a literal one — especially when the chorus kicks in and starts its commands of “Stop, Go,” among others. It’s a fascinating arrangement that perfectly captures what it’s like to want to escape from the world, contrasted with the harsh realities of life. Whether the chorus is Mom’s Home talking to herself or outside forces talking to her doesn’t matter — the song seems to run the whole gamut of electronic music from the 1980’s to now as well as the full spectrum of emotions one has while going through a bout of depression. Add on a stellar sax solo straight out of a 1990’s song, and “Stop, Go” makes for one hell of a catchy and poignant track. As Mom’s Home says herself about “Stop, Go:”

“This song is about depression and dissociation, and needing to do something when your body isn’t yours.”
