Release Date 12th June
Due for release straight off the back of the hotly anticipated Baby Strange EP ‘Land of Nothing’ in March, this double A-Side 7” has been created exclusively for Record Store Day 2021 and features a brand-new Baby Strange studio release ‘In the Flesh’ alongside a cover of Icons Creating Evil Art label mate Nicky William’s ‘Pathetic Fuck’.
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.
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 release 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.
