Hot off the back of the critically acclaimed 2022 album 'World Below', Baby Strange announce double A-Side single 'In The Flesh' / 'Pathetic Fuck' to coincide with the bands end of year headline show at Glasgow's prestigious SWG3.
Originally released as a 7" for Record Store Day 2021, these two Baby Strange tracks are being released worldwide for the first time and feature brand-new Baby Strange studio track ‘In the Flesh’ alongside a cover of Icons Creating Evil Art label mate Nicky William’s ‘Pathetic Fuck’.
About ‘In The Flesh’
In the flesh is a commentary on the role social media continues to play within people’s lives. Now more so than ever, leading to life in a post-pandemic world, the gap in behaviour between on-screen personalities & the same people In The Flesh has never been greater!
“Is your lighting right, will you swipe tonight? Never in The Flesh”
With angst laden vocals laid over the rhythmic urgency of the bass and drums, this is a Baby Strange song that will strike hard with the bands ever increasing fan base.
About ‘Pathetic Fuck’
Back in September 2020, Baby Strange were flown out to Stockholm to visit their new label Icons Creating Evil Art, and during the trip recorded a live session for the label’s own ‘Evil Art Session’ where artists cover a label mate’s song.
Picking the song for the session, Johnny Madden remembers: After signing with ICEA, I was browsing their catalogue and just fell in love with Nicky William, his baritone voice and his style is so unique. I came across Pathetic Fuck and just knew we had to do it.
It went so well in fact, that Baby Strange recorded their version in the studio, with Chris Marshall (Gerry Cinnamon), and originally released it to their fans as a collectors edition single for Record Store Day 2021.
Fans can expect a stripped back punk purist aesthetic blended with the undoubtedly Baby Strange style that their fans have come to expect.
