Canada's Basement Revolver play UK this week and debut single, 'Baby'
Words: Ellie Ward
Canadian indie-rock three-piece Basement Revolver have released their expansive new single 'Baby', taken from their debut album 'Heavy Eyes' which is due out via Fear Of Missing Out Records on August 24.
With fuzzy, dreamy, melancholic 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.
“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," reveals Chrisy. "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 band, who hail from Hamilton, Ontario, play their first ever shows in the UK this week at The Great Escape and a headline show at Paper Dress Vintage in London.
