Glaswegian indie-punks Baby Strange have released single ‘I Want To Believe’ from their forthcoming ‘Land of Nothing’ EP.
I Want To Believe is about wanting to be accepted by God but feeling you’re sinning too much in life to be fully accepted. It’s about paranoia and the need for redemption, as without redemption, you have no validation,” says Baby Strange vocalist and guitarist Johnny Madden about the band’s latest earworm of a single.
The pure melodic hook is paired with driven guitar, bass and pummeling drums in a sound that’s indicative of the Glasgow trio’s forthcoming rager of an EP Land of Nothing – set for release 30 April via Swedish indie Icons Creating Evil Art.
The single follows on from the grit-flecked Club Sabbath – a future dancefloor filler that specifically references Baby Strange’s own independent club night of the same name, legendary in the local scene.
The band will be heading out on an extensive UK headline tour in Oct/Nov/Dec 2021 (rescheduled from summer) under the, unfortunately quite apt, moniker ‘Land of Nothing Tour’. See below for dates. Tickets on sale now.
With a line-up rounded out by brothers Connaire & Aidan McCann, Baby Strange are about to set out their stall and re-establish themselves as one of the most innovative and uncompromising outfits in the UK. Since the release of their critically acclaimed 2016 debut album Want It Need It Baby Strange have toured tirelessly, building an enthusiastic and dedicated live audience, selling out venues across the UK & sharing stages with the likes of Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes, Slaves, Jamie T & Wavves.
Listen to I Want To Believe on all streaming services.
