“It’s got a 90’s grit that twists and turns – and would be right at home on a Buffy the Vampire Slayer soundtrack.” – Lucy Smith – triple j (AUS)

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 Alley, West Thebarton, The 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 Chats, The Smith Street Band, Pist Idiots, Skegss, Ocean Alley, Polish Club and WAAX, as well as performing at their debut music festival Rolling Sets in January, alongside Hilltop Hoods, The Rubens, Lime Cordiale, Mallrat and George Alice.
Their first two singles Feline and Mr Zil saw extensive support from Apple Music and Australian radio stations triple j, Double J, triple j Unearthed, FBi Radio, 2SER, 4ZZZ, SYN FM, Edge Radio, Radio Adelaide, 2XX FM and Aussie Music Weekly. They also saw support from online blogs Pilerats, Life Without Andy, Hysteria Magazine, The AU Review, Music Feeds, AAA Backstage and Ear to the Ground Music (USA).
In the coming weeks, Stupid Baby will reveal an accompanying music video for Fear.
