The Baby Seals
Head-bobbing empower pop from this head turning Peterborough/Cambridge 3 piece.
“Tunes! Bare-naked tunes… An electric guitar and bass, with drummer combo, warmed by vocal harmonies and humour… The songs sweep in like a summer breeze. Think Dum Dum Girls tenacity for songwriting, with an eye for an in-joke and an alternative viewpoint. Here’s a band whose music will shine anywhere, anytime.” Thefword.org.uk
“Sun-drenched, infectious indie music is blessed out enough to
make it seem like it’s summer all year round…” Wonderland
Broadway Danny Rose
”Swing from playing Hawaiian tinged ukulele beach pop with a soupçon of Jaques Brel to vividly cinematic instrumental pieces. Their gentle vocals can be as romantic as their song titles, “Beating Hearts of Birds”, “The Vampire from Bordeaux”, and their rhythmic riffs can be a fun as the attempts of a hapless talent agent to reconcile a lounge singer with his mistress, as he is mistaken for her lover by a jealous gangster” – The Duke of Uke
Awesome young and original indie pop band; moodily dark atmospheric samples and darkpop depths mixed with guitar tunes, combining a love of 80s/90s synth sounds with a 21st century pop sensibility.
