SINGLE - Mom Jeans
LABEL - Vital Music
IMPACT DATE - 27th October 2014
HEYROCCO‘s songs cut to the heart of teenage thrills: young love, long summer days, and the little details that trigger all that emotion.
Their new single Mom Jeans encapsulates all of that – and it’s a perfect example of HEYROCCO’s brilliant balance of dark rock, short ‘n’ sweet pop tunes and young, breathless excitement.
It’s the follow-up to previous single Virgin - which was Kerrang! Track of the Week. Mom Jeans has won them radio recognition, too - they will be recording an Xfm X-posure session for tastemaker John Kennedy at the end of October as they complete their debut UK tour.
HEYROCCO are thrilling fans around the country right now, with sold out shows and a huge audience at London’s KOKO kicking off their first UK jaunt.
“…the angst-ridden grunge of Nirvana, while flecks of Pavement ensure a distinctly nostalgic flavour to these young guitar heroes.” - NME
“You know those perfect songs that soundtrack your summer of late nights, romance and hedonism? Well, HEYROCCO have just dropped one.” - Gigwise
“Heyrocco’s new single launches us right into 90′s teenage movie nostalgia. Like these Southern sweethearts, we admittedly might not have been the coolest kids in high school—but at least we can pretend like we were while listening to some 90′s inspired rock and roll.” - NYLON
“… a darkly nostalgic vibe – worthy of, say, Radiohead’s much neglected ‘Pablo Honey’ full length.” - CLASH
