Momo and the Minutes
https://hotvox.co.uk/artist/momo-and-the-minutes/Originally the solo venture of composer Sam Dudley, MATM started life as a pet project of demos inspired by early 2000s guitar pop from Japan. The demos began to take shape as a collection of songs exploring the highs and lows of Dudley’s relationships during the pandemic, eventually becoming the tracklist to the debut EP Youth on Your Side released early 2022.
Since the EP release Dudley has been playing the London open mic scene with band mates Aletia Neilly (backing vox/guitar) and Josh Phillips (bass/backing vox). The band have started their run of shows for the autumn while they plan to head into the studio later in the year for the first time as a collective, to write a follow-up EP.
