Glasgow’s Baby Strange take a steadfast, creative, all-encompassing approach to music as an artform and have carved out an almost cult like status for themselves within the underground UK music scene. Latest single ‘More! More! More!’ is as anthemic as it is raw. It sees vocalist and guitarist Johnny Madden reflecting upon time spent listening through “paper thin walls” to house parties fuelled by class A’s and terrible music. “It’s essentially a commentary on a generation that’s stuck in its ways & doesn’t want to grow up,” he says. Its driving, bass heavy guitars and four to the floor drums are encased in a melody that will see heads nodding in the mainstream & pits started in the underground. The track is out now via Swedish independent label Icons Creating Evil Art, in a new union that celebrates a shared vision & resolute, creative determination.
Baby Strange have also announced an extensive UK headline tour in June 2021 under the moniker ‘Land of Nothing Tour’. See below for dates. Tickets on sale tomorrow.
With a line-up rounded out by brothers Connaire & Aidan McCann, Baby Strange are about to set out their stall and re-establish themselves as one of the most innovative and uncompromising outfits in the UK. Since the release of their critically acclaimed 2016 debut album ‘Want It Need It’, Baby Strange have toured tirelessly, building an enthusiastic and dedicated live audience, selling out venues across the UK & sharing stages with the likes of Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes, Slaves, Jamie T & Wavves.
Far from being just satisfied with focusing on their own journey, Baby Strange took a step further to solidifying themselves within the heart of the music community by launching their own club night ‘Club Sabbath’ back in 2015 at The Priory in Glasgow & The Old Blue Last in London. Since its inception, Club Sabbath has played an active role in building a thriving music community, providing a platform for the likes of Wolf Alice, Fontaines D.C, DMA’s, The Chats, Gang Of Four, The Magic Gang, Nick Allbrook (POND) and Marsicans. Bands such as The Dunts, The Spyres, Dead Pony, Rascalton & Pleasure Heads all cite Baby Strange & Club Sabbath as a direct influence on their musical journeys.
