Heavily driven by guitar, doused in obnoxious drum bashing and covered in vocals produced by one very assertive set of lungs, these indie-rock rebels are called Hey Baby! and their message is clear.
Acting as ambassadors for the legal marijuana movement, the very catchy 1-800 WEED is evidence that Hey Baby! are not afraid to admit their love affair with the popular herb. And so they shouldn’t be.
Blasted out by frontman Kacper Majchrowski’s impassioned lead, 1-800 Weed is a stanky ballad of protest from Brisbane’s Hey Baby!
Born out of a bedroom in the Blue Mountains seven years earlier, this four-piece is dedicated to one cause. If it’s not already obvious what that cause might be, you may need a little help. Or you’ve been smoking too much weed.
There’s no better way to get the message across than with a rage of dirty guitar riffs, rough melodies and an outrageous amount of cymbal crashing, and after months of playing around Brisbane, it seems Hey Baby! finally have.
Bursting with rhythm, it’s not hard to picture the chaotic live performance that would spring from a track like 1-800 WEED. With many already impressed by their fast-paced energy and garage rock sound, it’s hardly a surprise they recorded their first single with Konstantin Kersting (The Belligerents, The Jungle Giants).
You can catch Hey Baby! in August around Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane this August. Catch their tour dates below.
