Seeing a band called babybaby_explores makes me feel like that Matt Damon/Saving Private Ryan gif, so you know if I can overcome that this is a great song. I first became aware of the band because they're opening up for Lightning Bolt's tour, and "Twiddle" sounds like a band that would open for Lightning Bolt without being exactly like what you would expect. "Twiddle" is definitely a strange, decidedly non-mainstream song, but it doesn't have that explosive and destructive noise associated with their tour mates. Instead, babybaby_explores is much more laid back and electronic sounding. It's more similar to an artist like Peaches in that dancey, electro-clash kind of way. As you would expect, "Twiddle" is definitely not for everyone, but if it works for you, this one will be adored for a long time.
babybaby_explores say that their new single is "... a first person narrative about being stuck talking to a stranger at a party. Your best friend has your back and helps end the conversation. It features a real-time burp and is an ode to the musical artist Peaches."
You can watch the video for "Twiddle" below. Food Near Me, Weather Tomorrow is due out March 3 on No Gold. For more on babybaby_explores, check out the band's website.
