Altered By Momis an alt/rock/indie duo from Toronto that combine a knack for infectious melodies and classic songwriting with a quirky sense of humour and a tongue-in-cheek post grunge aesthetic.
They sound like Alanis Morissette, Oliva Rodrigo, and Sloan chowing down on a party sub in the security line at YYZ.
Fresh off the success of their 2021 collection “52 SONGS,” Canada’s musical power
couple Gina Kennedy and Devon Lougheed are demanding centre stage with the release of “AHEM” on June 30, 2023.
Ultimate single “Gwendolyn” is inspired by “the feeling of being overwhelmingly in love with someone and having your mind consistently blown by how amazing they are”, according to Lougheed. The song perfectly combines the best parts of Neo 90s with undeniable pop hooks. The home-brewed music video offers a nostalgic time machine trip for anyone who sat glued to MuchMusic’s Countdown in its heyday.

The upcoming release AHEMis a metaphorical throat clearing, a demand for attention, and a command of the floor.
While 52 SONGS was a 52 course meal, the four tracks of on AHEM are a power snack, like a banana with a Red Bull Chaser, an amuse-bouche for the ears.

Lead singles “Dive In”, “Everygirl”, “Waiting on a Sign That’s Already There” and now “Gwendolyn” are compelling, fun, and introspective songs about self-belief, pursuing love, and embracing the weird and wonderful in life.
