Label: Icons Creating Evil Art
Released: 17th June 2022
You best be sure after two and a bit years of universal struggle, and a hell of a lot longer living under the crushing pressure of an unfair modern world, that bands have something to say.
Baby Strange definitely do. Coming out of Glasgow, refusing to back down from a fight, they’re a band on a mission. Opening title track ‘World Below’ pulses with tension, echoing off the walls, while ‘Only Feel it When I’m With You’ drops the tempo, dragging the trio out of their comfort zone but onto fertile ground.
Fired up and with fists raised, Baby Strange’s second album is a line in the sand that redefines them as a band, in the best possible way. ■ Stephen Ackroyd
