STUPID BABY Reveal Frenetic Accompanying Clip For Single ‘Mr Zil’

“Stupid Baby showing off a different side straight away with a spitty, snarling punk rock angle on this one. I’m hearing The Drones influence bleeding nicely into this.” – 4/5 starsDeclan Byrne – triple j

“The growl Stupid Baby possess in this track is striking. It’s angsty and relentless and I love it.” – 4/5 starsClaire Mooney – triple j

“With relentless drums, scorching guitars and thumping bass, the angsty track leaves nothing up to the imagination.”Hysteria Magazine

Following on from the release of their critically praised follow-up single Mr Zil, NSW Central Coast-based indie-punk quartet Stupid Baby have returned with the accompanying video clip – edited by co-lead vocalists Jake Dobson and Liz Drummond, and Jack Stafford (re._stacks).

With the on-set of isolation in March-April, the band shot the whole video on their iPhones at each of their houses. Being unable to film something with a complex narrative, they instead each got dressed up and performed their own interpretations of the track, creating something hilarious, with just the right amount of weird.

Dobson explains the process behind filming Mr. Zil:

“The whole isolation experience has just confirmed you can still make a fairly entertaining video with no budget, using an iPhone. This song is fairly chaotic, and character driven, and we didn’t necessarily want to make a video that was aesthetically sophisticated or refined anyway. So, we think the DIY approach worked well considering the circumstances.”

While only in their infancy, the group have already toured and shared stages with the likes of The ChatsThe Smith Street BandPist IdiotsSkegssOcean AlleyPolish Club and WAAX. The band also recently performed at the sold-out Rolling Sets festival held in January in Coffs Harbour, alongside Hilltop HoodsThe RubensLime CordialeMallrat and George Alice.

Both Mr Zil and debut single Feline have been warmly received by Australian radio including airplay from triple jDouble Jtriple j UnearthedFBi Radio2SER4ZZZSYN FMRadio Adelaide and 2XX FM.
