NSW Central Coast-based indie-rock trio Stupid Baby are back with their new track, Fear, produced and Simon Dobson (Bootleg Rascal).
The track navigates the fear of losing someone, though making no effort to hold onto the relationship. Continuing their foray into indie-rock, Fear is driven by haunting guitar harmonics, groove-laden bass lines and attention grabbing vocals from lead singer and drummer, Jake Dobson.
Speaking of the conceptual standpoint of the song, Dobson shares: “The song is a story about the fear of losing someone, but not doing anything to keep them. Most of the song focuses on the realisation of self-sabotage and the consequential regret. Though the story is pretty sombre, we wanted to keep the music upbeat and confident. You could say that a lot of 80’s goth pop was consumed this year. Dance, be sad, and try to feel good about it. Next question.”
Having shared the stage with the likes of The Chats, The Smith Street Band, Pist Idiots, Skegss, Ocean Alley, Polish Club and WAAX, the band are no strangers to performing and even scored a slot at Rolling Sets in January this year. Fear follows up the bands previous singles Feline and Mr Zil which scored the three piece airtime on a number of national stations, including triple j and FBi Radio.
Fear is out now!
