Girobabies give you baffling grunge soul music with a dollop of psycadelic dystopian elbowgrease and a pinch of gutter-rock utopian lyricism.
The Glasgow based band have just released their offical debut album ‘Who Took Utopia?’ to critical acclaim. This was a self-produced and self-released follow up to Two mini LPs ‘Bus Stop Apocalypse’ & ‘Social Not Working’ and a secret album called ‘Taxi Driver Rumour’ where the Girobabies used an indie/grunge, almost punk, backbeat to deliver pertinent political/social observations akin to the likes of the Sleaford Mods, The Streets & The Fall.
As well as being the frontman with the Megaphone, McG is a renowned poet, writer & spoken word artist under his alias Jackal Trades. Guitarist Robbie Gunn (also performing solo under the guise of Sun Dogs) is a leading Glasgow producer. Drummer by trade, Gordy Duncan JR is also a well-respected solo artist (releasing his debut album in 2015). Recent additions of Jess on Keyboards and the Bass of renowned DJ & Producer Jo D`arc (also of the Twistettes) has refined the balance is this multi-talented band of artists.
Self-funding everything they do, in the truest DIY spirt, the Girobabies have made a name for themselves be being stalwarts of the summer festival scene and gigging the length and breadth of the UK – culminating in a co-headline slot at the legendary Barrowlands. Appearances on STV, airplay and BBC 6 Music continues to propel the band into the consciousness of music lovers everywhere.
