Babybird

Real Life (bandcamp)

By • May 9th, 2018 • Category: short players

This track is the latest release Bandcamp release from Stephen Jones, aka Babybird. He has been prolific in the past few years after a major health event (heart attack) and is undertaking a UK tour during May. This fairly understated track is an outtake from a couple of years ago (there is a lot of new material to be reviewed).

There is piano, couplets of words, an electronic percussion track and backing vocals, very yearning and evocative – the words are dark, reflective and blackly humorous. Like many of his tracks (and BM has been a fan through the good and bad years) there is a hymnal quality, and a soulfulness which is both uplifting, and chilling at the same time.

Could 2018 be BB’s year? He still has it…
