Måneskin release their powerful new single ‘MAMMAMIA’

Måneskin have released their powerful new single “MAMMAMIA.” During the press conference, Måneskin’s frontman Damiano David explained that the song was written right after winning Eurovision: “We only had a few days to go to the studio and write new music, but fortunately this song came out in a few hours – that’s why we felt like it was going to be a banger for us.”

Victoria de Angelis, the bassist, also added: “We didn’t take it too seriously. It’s a very silly, careless song and we’ve never done something like that before. It came together very naturally. We just tried to have fun and enjoy it, because [it was written] in a moment where we were experiencing a lot of things.”

Damiano also added that the song pokes fun at all the assumptions and rumours that were made about the band following their international success with the song “Zitti e Buoni,” the winning song of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. He explained that “After Eurovision, we had a lot of attention on us. A lot of the time, we did something that we thought was great but people criticised it. I wanted to translate that into the lyrics, because it happens a lot – maybe you’re doing something that you feel is great, but people don’t understand it and make bad judgements and bad comments about it. I wanted to make fun of that situation.

Regarding whether or not they felt as if their recent international fame had also incresed the levels of misunderstanding about Måneskin and their work, Victoria answered “Absolutely. But we try to think about what makes us feel represented and makes us feel satisfied. It’s impossible to please everyone. We just focus on what we like: if people understand it we’re very happy, but not everyone will be happy about the same thing.”
