EF baby?

What the F is EF baby?!

EF baby is a legit based on a Whatsapp group chat that I am part of which was born from our weekend at the 2018 Electric Fields music festival at Drumlanrig Castle! “Write a song about our group chat!” someone said! So I did! And that someone is one of those braw folk in the photos on the artwork for the single!

I have been writing, recording and producing my first album for the past year which features a range of styles from pop, to house, to disco, to ambient, to alternative, to classical and everything in between: an eclectic mish-mash of sounds and styles that have influenced me across the years. I’ve released a few tracks this year to get into the swing of releasing music, but my album is my baby and I can’t wait to get it out there!

I’m a 90s kid at heart. I grew up in the age of Britpop, Rave and Spice. I loved, still love and always will love 90s pop music! I’ll take a slice of vintage cheddar pop any day.

For EF baby, I really wanted to go for an up tempo, dance pop sound in the vein of that unmistakable era of late 90s / early 2000s Europop. Vengaboys. Danski & Delmundo. Aqua. Alice Deejay. Eiffel 65. My not-so guilty pleasures!

I immediately knew that I wanted a track that would have a nonsensical chant, repetitive beats and a didgeridoo. I also wanted it to sound like the kinda track you’d hear on a waltzer while you’re spinning around trying not to throw your guts up over the carriage next to you.

YOLO and aw that.

After a few incarnations, versions, tweaks and all that music stuff, EF baby turned into a bouncy, housey, didgeridoo sounding, EF BABY spelling, dancey wee track that reeks of liquid gold on a waltzer at 3.30am after swigging gin from a plastic bottle, borrowed from a wee lamb who’s just tried to have a conversation in Sneaky Pete’s Disco Tent about how good the Abba Tent was after raving to Leftfield in the rain after having skipped back to the campsite to wish Emma a happy birthday with some balloons.

It makes sense to us in the EF baby group chat anyway.

And it sounds exactly as I wanted it to!
