Storytime! I’ve been awake since 3 am. No, I’m not a postal worker, refuse collector or a shift manager. I write for Independent Music News in a shed surrounded by broken plant pots and gnomes. Anyhow, back to the story. This morning, a strange event occurred; one that will impact the rest of the world. Tossing and turning in bed, I suddenly hear the shrieks of a child reverberating off the terraced houses. In a state of shock and horror, I quickly get dressed and haphazardly shuffle down the stairs. Slowly opening the front door, a fluorescent light blinded any hope of reality. A Neon Baby in a plastic bag had been neglected on my doorstep, and I was now the sole guardian.
Neon Baby is the latest release from Kavanagh; a poetic, fast and explosive rock band from Brighton. The seaside resort is synonymous for moulding influential musicians. The Kooks, British Sea Power, Freemasons, and Blood Red Shoes are just a few acts that have taken over the industry and devoured its listeners with pleasurable music. Up next is Kavanagh.
The band is notable for producing ’90s inspired rock with releases like She Stole The Sun transporting us back to the heyday of flannel shirts, ripped jeans and combat boots. Neon Baby is no different; it packs a punch, is stuffed to the brim with rebellious tones, and its hobbies include throwing TVs out of hotel rooms and crowd-surfing. If you’re after a smooth rock ‘n’ roll ride, don’t play this song. This track is for the separated and far removed individuals of society: the outsiders, the non-confirmers, and the free-spirited. Play Neon Baby loud and proud!
Out tomorrow, you can listen to it now on Independent Music News. Go on, press the play button.
