Goth Babe Announces New LP Lola
Goth Babe has announced his debut album, Lola will drop on January 26, 2024 via Mom + Pop Music (Courtney Barnett). Goth Babe AKA:Griff Washburn has balanced his profile as a musician with staying grounded and living a scaled back lifestyle that allows him to pursue his love of the outdoors and the environment. Having spent time living in his car, a tiny house, and a camper van, all inclusive of moments of joy and unfettered freedom as well as loneliness and trauma, Lola—his new album, named for the sailboat on which he now lives— is a confirmation of Goth Babe’s story so far.
Goth Babe has also shared a trailer for his upcoming short film, also named “Lola”. Directed by Ian Durkin, the short film follows the making of the new album and introduces new and old fans alike to who Goth Babe really is (and get to know his perpetual sidekick, his blue-eyed Australian Shepherd named Sadie).
To celebrate the album’s announcement, Goth Babe has shared his newest single, the atmospheric ballad “Backwards” with WATTS. Singer-songwriter WATTS broke through in 2021 when Khalid joined him on his single “Feels” and his pairing with Goth Babe finds the duo’s vocals contemplating heartbreak.
Since founding Goth Babe in 2015, Washburn has partnered with environmentally conscious brands to share his music to the world in unconventional ways. With outdoor brand Arc’Teryx, he traveled to Iceland to create an original music for Creation Theory, a film directed by Ben Sturgulewski and Ben Moon that seeks to find the parallels between sport and music, and answer the question: where does creativity come from? The film went on to win The Banff Film Festival’s Creative Excellence Award, Spain’s Mendi Film Festival’s Best Soundtrack and Vimeo’s Staff Award Pick. The music was released in the form of Surfing In Iceland EP in 2022. Goth Babe also teamed up with Plus1 for his 2023 North American tour with money from all ticket sales going to protectourwinters.org. With Kombucha brand JuneShine, he launched a signature Goth Babe hard kombucha named after his 2019 single, “Weekend Friend,” with 1% of sales going to Protect Our Winters.
