Broken Baby Celebrate Split 7″ LP With A Sold Out Show At El Cid
LOS ANGELES, CA-
“… A band that I’m really high on is Broken Baby. Their live shows are guaranteed fun. Not only is their music incredibly catchy, but the energy with which they rock a stage, powered by their lead singer Amber Bollinger, is a force to be reckoned with. Whether she’s singing lyrics while sprawled across the stage, tying her shoes, or crawling on top of you, her charisma is undeniable,
Their side of the 7″ features two cuts: “Madonna’s a Dick” and “The Feelers”. In advance of the show, they released “Madonna’s a Dick” as a single, and in an interview with The Bucket Playlist they say that it’s a song about systemic sexism. Amber states:
“Commentators don’t like Madonna’s brashness, so she got labeled a bitch. It made me think, if she were a guy, “They’d probably give her a raise, she’d be the president of the United States”, which became the chorus.’
And that’s what I absolutely love about Broken Baby. While the sonics of their music is imbued with energetic, post-punk… even pop… enthusiasm, they’re always digging deeper into really heady topics that makes you want to bang your head just a little bit harder for them.
You may get a sense that I may have a slightly biased opinion about Broken Baby. Sue me. “Get the Piss Up” (<- the name of their newest single) and check them out…”
