SUPPORT FOR STUPID BABY
“It’s big sounding stuff from Stupid Baby. A tidy mix of shoegaze, dreamy and grunge that works so well. Keen to hear more!” – 4/5 stars
– Declan Byrne – triple j (AUS)
“Stupid Baby deliver deliciously dark debut ‘Feline’.”
– Life Without Andy (AUS)
NSW Central Coast-based indie-rock quartet, Stupid Baby have just unveiled their stunning debut single ‘Feline’ – produced by Simon Dobson (Bootleg Rascal) and mixed by Dylan Adams (DMA’s, Skegss, The Gooch Palms, West Thebarton).
Taking cues from the likes of The Kills, Sonic Youth and The Dead Weather, ‘Feline’ is a brooding and thought-provoking slice of sophisticated indie-rock, that swiftly sets the pace with its immediate and unwavering consistency. Dynamics and structure are harnessed with finesse, as deft instrumentation provides an apt foundation for the dual vocal efforts of Liz Drummond and Jake Dobson to brightly shine.
Drummond describes the motivation behind ‘Feline’:
“We felt ‘Feline’ was a good introduction to what’s to come from Stupid Baby. We wrote it pretty quickly in the room together, starting with the riff. The lyrics were fairly stream of consciousness between Jake and I, which we liked. We wanted to hone in on the dual vocal thing, and for all the parts of this song to be driving, and alluding to some kind of intense relationship dynamic. It’s probably one of the moodier, darker Stupid Baby songs”.
Stupid Baby is made up of four long-time friends, Liz Drummond (Little May), Jake Dobson (Desert Moons), Eli Milojkovic (Sea Legs) and Will Glencross.
Despite not having released any music, the band have already toured and shared stages with the likes of The Chats, The Smith Street Band, Pist Idiots, Skegss, Ocean Alley, Polish Club and WAAX. The group are set to appear at the inaugural Rolling Sets festival held in January in Coffs Harbour, alongside Hilltop Hoods, The Rubens, Mallrat and George Alice.
In the coming weeks Stupid Baby will reveal an accompanying music video for ‘Feline’.
