NSW Central Coast-based indie-rock trio Stupid Baby has just revealed their audacious new single Fear – produced and mixed by Simon Dobson (Bootleg Rascal) and mastered by Andrew Edgson (Ocean AlleyWest ThebartonThe Gooch Palms).

Driven by haunting guitar harmonics, groove-laden bass lines and the commanding vocals of lead singer/drummer Jake Dobson, Fear is another masterful exploration of indie-rock by the group. The track darts back and forth between all-encompassing fervour and spacious, syncopated builds, hurtling towards a wholly satisfying ending.

Dobson talks about the meaning behind Fear:

“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.”

In the live arena, the band have shared stages with the likes of The ChatsThe Smith Street BandPist IdiotsSkegssOcean AlleyPolish Club and WAAX, as well as performing at their debut music festival Rolling Sets in January, alongside Hilltop HoodsThe RubensLime CordialeMallrat and George Alice.
