Melbourne outfit Baby Blue have extended summer with the release of I Like You' taken from forthcoming EP Do What You Like

Published by: This Much Talent | 25-Apr-2018
Sun-lovin' Melbourne outfit Baby Blue has been producing 70s garage with a hint of doo-wop and blues for merely a year or so, and they've already earned their stripes as leaders among the local indie scene. With previous singles New Girlfriend', Concentrate' and most recently Fire And Ice', the time travelling four-piece are excited to reveal their next fresh instalment I Like You' today out on Neat Lawn Records.
Baby Blue is ultimately a marker for Rhea Caldwell's progress as both a songwriter and human, the trials and triumphs she faces finding their place in songs that appeal from the first instant. There's zero pretension at play, just a desire to connect with others and make sense of the world through music.

The second taste from the forthcoming EP Do What You Like due for release Friday 1 June. I Like You' is a song about crushing on someone, and sees Rhea harnessing the storytelling of traditional heart-on-your-sleeve doo-wop with subtle nods to 50s and 60s rock and roll, that is both playful and uplifting. The Jangly guitars and the catchy dreamy pop melodies are just begging you to sing along.

Stream 'I Like You' here:

"I Like You is a song about really, really liking someone and them not liking you back. I'm very prone to develop crushes on people that are a little bit non-sensical and I wanted to write about that scenario and how often when we feel this way we feel like we have to apologize for our feelings when the crush isn't reciprocated. It's madness. All feelings are valid and we shouldn't feel like we have to apologize or feel guilty for them at all." "“ Rhea Caldwell

Rhea along with her full band has become a powerful and compelling live act, performing alongside notable local acts Rolling Blackouts Costal Fever, The Ocean Party, Jordie Lane, Leah Senior, Emma Russack, and Timberwolf, as well as gracing the stages of Boogie Festival and playing at Bello Winter Music. More recently Baby Blue was invited to support international outfits The Courtney's, Chastity Belt, and Benjamin Booker's Bluesfest sideshow.

Do What You Like EP out via Neat Lawn Friday 1 June.
