We will discuss two mechanisms of momentum relaxation in holography which preserve homogeneity in the bulk geometry. Studying the condensation of a complex scalar field on these black hole solutions we will describe superconductivity on the dual theory. We will then compute the optical conductivity of the so constructed black holes and compare with other models in the literature.
