North Coast cosmic conduits Babe Rainbow are at their laconic, luminous peak, curiously exploring their place in sonic space while permaculturally rooted here on Planet Earth, to drifting, dazzling effect.
Sprouting from the high vibrational vortex that is Australia's Eastern-most tip - Byron Bay - the music of Babe Rainbow acts as an extension of the consciously living community that has made the area so magnetic for decades.
Gently psychedelic and lightly jammy, simmering on mechanised samba rhythms and stratospheric flute with a Gainsbourg swagger. Babe Rainbow’s sound is vividly respectful of the past whilst emphatically living in the present, a collection of sounds and sentiments from a place between yesterday and tomorrow.
Angus, Jack, Elliot and Louise alongside their patient producer Sam Joseph (King Gizzard), Reap the fertile rewards of music borne of fruit trees and honey mead, surfing and self-sufficiency, Babe Rainbow’s music bristles with the life of the region from whence it came.
