Premiered on Double J and Radio Kix respectively, these energetic new singles represent the two sides of the Andy Golledge coin; one a raucous rock song packed with the energy of a young Bruce Springsteen (New Stamp), the other a blue-collar gospel sing-along packed with all the foot tappin’ goodness of Golledge’s infamous live show (Baby Mumma).
Golledge says it was in fact his live show that helped shape these two songs into what you hear today:
“New Stamp originally had a softer, bluesy vibe but evolved through performance as a means to get drunk people at the Sando to pay attention.”
“Similarly, Baby Mumma came to life when the band formed about 6 yrs ago, it was a very different song to the one you hear today, it’s evolved from a folk song into a country gospel song over the years, very much due to performing it to audiences over time and it slowly become a sing-along.”
If Golledge is only just now beeping onto your radar, we almost envy you the voyage of discovery. His name has practically become folklore in Sydney’s Inner West, both for the exhilarating unpredictability of his live shows and the curveballs of his repertoire, genre-hopping between ’60s country and ’80s Greatest Hits rock.
New Stamp and Baby Mumma are Golledge’s first releases since his 2020 single Ghost of Love which saw love across Triple M and ABC Country Radio and saw him tour NSW with shows in Sydney, Newcastle, Byron, Tamworth and Wollongong. Ghost of Love was the highly anticipated follow up to Andy’s debut EP ‘Namoi’, which was released in early 2020 to glowing support from the likes of American Songwriter, Consequence of Sound, Vinyl Me Please, Chorus & Verse, Elicit Magazine, Enigma and Vents Magazine and adds to a myriad of rock and country music tastemaker playlists across Apple and Spotify.
With New Stamp and Baby Mumma Andy Golledge comes crashing back into our ears with two songs you simply won’t be able to turn off, as he amps up for a larger release that he refers to as “the road trip of my life so far”.
