“Baby” Basement Revolver

Basement Revolver share their striking new video for “Baby” ahead of their October UK tour supporting Amber Arcades. “Baby” was one of the lead-singles from their recent album Heavy Eyes, which came out last month via Fear Of Missing Out.

Weaving melancholia with fuzzy dreamy pop melodies and a heavy guitar undercurrent, lead-singer Chrisy Hurn shares intimate stories and personal wounds from her past, revealing a deeply affecting and rewarding insight. The video follows Chrisy on a journey and with visably expressive and emotive delivery. She explains more about the song:

“I feel a lot of emotions, sometimes annoyingly so. Baby is about feeling sad and down even though you are generally happy about everything and everyone in your life. It’s about feeling confused about what I want in life, and how that affects other people. It is about crying a lot and feeling like I was burdening my partner with those questions (even though he has always been completely sorry) and not wanting him to feel like he was the source of my anxiety. It is also about my tendency to retreat when things get too overwhelming, to spend all day and night in my bed and watching Netflix and eating Doritos.”

The trio of Chrisy Hurn (vocals, guitar), Nimal Agalawatte (bass, synth) and Brandon Munro (drums) hail from Hamilton, Ontario and their ascent to the spotlight has been a steady trajectory. They were signed by Memphis Industries’ UK sub-label Fear Of Missing Out, who released their debut self-titled EP in 2016.
