The Baby Breaks’ new single is an explosion of jazz-garage chaos

Brisbane garage-rock band The Baby Breaks have delivered their new single One Handed Clap. With an out of control saxophone line, distinct base riffs, thunderous drums, and distorted vocals I can only imagine the chaos that would ensue watching them live.

Forming in 2018, the band are relatively new to the music scene, but have quickly made a name for themselves back home playing a stack of local gigs at The Brightside, Sol Bar and The Zoo, alongside bands like The Southern River Band, Peach Fur and The Bonnie Doons.

The Baby Breaks new single One Handed Clap is garage rock bliss, with a killer saxophone, grungy vocals and infectious melodies.

Recorded at Heliport Studios on the Sunshine Coast with music producer James Russell, Mitchell Quinn of the band said:

“One Handed Clap was recorded live and is practically one take other than the fact we dubbed in extra guitar parts afterwards. I was on the tail end of bronchitis when we did it and decided to use it as an advantage for raw vocals.”

A reflection of the 00’s garage rock revival, The Baby Breaks seamlessly blend elements of blues, southern rock n’ roll and jazz. Their music is chaotic, but thoughtfully so. Across the new single’s four-and-a-half-minute duration, the band present a bombardment of sounds that will slap you right across the head.

These are still early days for this Brisbane outfit, but judging by the quality of what we’ve heard so far, I think we can safely expect plenty more quality tunes from The Baby Breaks.  In the meantime, do yourself a favour and listen to One Handed Clap above.

Catch their single launch at Rics Bar in Brisbane on Saturday, April 20th.
