Dreamy grunge-pop fermented with the knotty impatience and potent vulnerability of obsessive-compulsive songwriter Siân Alex, North London outfit Gold Baby serve an own-brand concoction of confessional indie-pop.

 

Armed with a band name and a handful of songs, Siân moved to London from her hometown Nottingham in 2018 and set about finding musicians who would help tell her short stories.  Taken from a Sylvia Plath poem, the name of the band would become fatefully linked to what Gold Baby would become, as the band stepped through several incarnations, each smaller and stronger than the last. Stepping up on to lead guitar, the name became a source of strength as the words of the poem became her mantra. ‘I am the pure gold baby. Out of the ash I rise with my red hair and I eat men like air’. 

 

Gold Baby pairs the neurotic verbosity of Fiona Apple with the white noise nonchalance of Pavement. Packaging cryptic lyricism and delicately fractured guitar parts with surges of power-pop and feedback, Siân describes it as ‘what it might sound like if Sufjan Stevens wrote a Weezer song’. Gold Baby now consists of Siân, Sara and Scott, a small family bonded by a tenacious commitment to the gold Baby vision. 

The bands next release will be Dogbone, a meditation on sentiment, an angry exploration of what it means to care. It follows the success of singles 500/1 and Philadelphia this autumn and will be released on the 10th of January 2020, followed in February by Japanese Racehorse

 

The band are currently recording an EP of new material for release in the spring, and are  writing their first album.
