Hot off the back of the critically acclaimed 2022 album World Below, post-punk/punk group Baby Strange drop their double A-Side single “In The Flesh” / “Pathetic Fuck” via Icons Creating Evil Art. Originally released as a 7″ for Record Store Day 2021, these two Baby Strange tracks are being released digitally worldwide for the first time and feature brand-new Baby Strange studio track “In the Flesh” alongside a cover of Icons Creating Evil Art label mate Nicky William’s “Pathetic Fuck.”
Johnny Madden comments on the band’s choice of cover song:
“After signing with ICEA, I was browsing their catalogue and just fell in love with Nicky William, his baritone voice and his style is so unique. I came across Pathetic Fuck and just knew we had to do it.”
“In The Flesh” is a commentary on the role social media continues to play in people’s lives. Now more so than ever, leading to life in a post-pandemic world, the gap in behaviour between on-screen personalities & the same people In The Flesh has never been more significant! With angst-laden vocals laid over the rhythmic urgency of the bass and drums, this is a Baby Strange song that will strike hard with the band’s ever-increasing fan base.
