Amidst a torrential downpour of noise, Basement Revolver finds their voice. "Baby" begins and continues with the echo of instruments; massive guitars that seem to plunge into one another, the ringing beat of drums that provide a steady flow of resounding heartbeats. It's a thick and massive sound, one that swallows you whole, and leaves you submerged, unable to escape until its roaring finish. And despite the impressive power and might displayed by their noise, the vocals of Chrisy Hurn float to the surface, a stark and haunting contrast in a single seemingly reliant on force. Once you read the story of the song, its dazzling strength makes sense, "Baby" standing as a poetic, musical representation of the struggle to hold onto calm even amidst the storm of anxiety. The track appears on Heavy Eyes out 8/24.
