Baby Cool releases debut single and video 'Magic'
Brisbane, Australia psych-pop artist Baby Cool is today sharing ‘Magic’, the debut single from the new project by Nice Biscuit co-frontwoman Grace Cuell. Arriving following recent tour dates with Babe Rainbow and The Lazy Eyes, Baby Cool’s ‘Magic’ is out now via the Bad Vibrations imprint. Watch the video below and stream/download at all the usual spots.
On the new single, Cuell says: “It’s difficult to think fondly of yourself when you’re caught in a loop of destructive habits. I wrote Magic as a way of kissing myself gently on the forehead during such times. Life seems to be an infinite cycle of remembering and forgetting, and with this comes a need to learn how to forgive yourself over and over again.”
The track softly lands into a Biscuit-esque groove, before Cuell’s vocals echo through a layered soundscape. Pulling the listener into the realm of Baby Cool for the first time, ‘Magic’ gently brushes through the genre of psych – combining fuzz-driven chorus’ with washed-out melodies that build into a bridge of kaleidoscopic vocal harmonies.
‘Magic’ is released alongside a music video made by Brisbane/Berlin-based graphic artist Dougal Morrison. “Dougal is a genuine wizard. Nice Biscuit has worked alongside him for years, so it felt right to have him on board to help visualise Baby Cool. Like most wizards, Dougal’s process is a bit of a mystery to me. For this video he has used a combination of his own graphic design spells and some whack AI technology. However he did it, it felt like magic – which seems fitting.”
