Baby Teardrops Offer Free Download

Baby Teardrops

Fresh from performing at SXSW this year, Baby Teardrops are gearing up for the release of their debut album X Is For Love on April 7. Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, Baby Teardrops are unsigned and are self-releasing their first album.  It is a daunting task indeed but should be no problem for these rising stars. 

Baby Teardrops are Matthew Dunehoo on vocals and guitar; Megan Thomas on bass, backing vocals and piano; and Gerry White on drums. Their style has been described as neo-grunge but I would place it before that and compare them to the likes of The Jesus and Mary Chain, Pixies or Violent Femmes.  Musically, Baby Teardrops have a great multi-layered sound with reverberating guitars and hypnotic basslines that blend perfectly with Dunehoo’s distinctive vocals. 

As Dunehoo explains, “my songs are opportunities for one idea to exist in the air with sound surrounded by a bed of, if not fancy, then functional flowers.” It is indeed a rich and complex sound and the tracks on debut album X Is For Love are certainly catchy; I predict big things for Baby Teardrops in the near future.

Keeping with their indie theme of releasing their own album, Baby Teardrops hired independent New York filmmaker Serg Soza to direct the video for their track “Smooth Sailing Ahead”.  The video was shot earlier this year on a particularly icy evening in New York’s Lower East Side.  The bar in the video is The Local 269 on the Lower East Side where Gerry White still works.

To mark the release of their debut album X Is For Love on April 7, Baby Teardrops are offering their track “Banged in the Heart” for free download:
