The Los Angeles power-pop trio Potty Mouth waited six years to release their sophomore album this past March, and they’re not wasting any time in following up the standout LP Snafu.
Industry hassles fully behind them, they’re back with “Favorite Food,” a very catchy, very ’90s garage rock nugget that follows album standouts like “Fencewalker” and “22” quite nicely.
“‘Favorite Food’ is another one of our not-so-lovey love songs,” says guitarist-vocalist Abby Weems, citing the scruffy guitar pop of the Muffs and ’90s Green Day as key inspirations. “It’s a fun take on being reluctant to get romantically involved with someone.”
Weems snarks in the chorus, “Maybe I could change my point of view/ Hold your hand with people in the room/ Get out all the things we need to make your favorite food.”
“Favorite Food” was made in collaboration with producer/recording engineer Danny Balistocky and assistant Adam Allison at L.A.’s Revolution 9 Recording Studios — the band’s first time working with the team. Like Snafu, it arrives on Get Better Records, the community-minded DIY imprint founded ten years ago by Alex Lichtenauer. The single artwork was done by Rachel R. Adler (@hatchcomic).
“Favorite Food” is out Friday, but for now, you can stream it exclusively below. For more on Snafu and the unique backstory that led to it, check out Billboard‘s Potty Mouth interview from earlier this year.
