Blame Baby

Blame Baby releases sophomore indie single "The Floor"

Blame Baby have captured the essence of early 2000s emo, injected it into pop punk circa 2020, and released a catchy little offspring called "The Floor". This follow-up single to their debut "Headcase" further showcases the band's ability to craft steady indie pop songs around serious subject matter. Guitarist and lead singer Jesse Johnson attacks privilege and greed from the viewpoint of someone who can see the misery inherent in incessant wanting, while bandmates Omar D. Brancato and Matt Tucci back him up on the rhythm and bass. The band's first single of 2020 sets the stage for more to come this year; take a look at the lyric video for "The Floor" below. - Will Sisskind

   

Listen to Blame Baby's lively new single, "Headcase"

On "Headcase," power-pop trio Blame Baby realize that our younger years aren't that different from our adult life. "Memory of memories at full assault/Revealed in reverie identities true and false," vocalist Jesse Johnson sings over a chugging guitar line, a thought that came from a conversation he had with his younger sister. Despite the anxiety he feels, the band's jovial debut single pulses with an anthemic energy that aims for the rafters.
