Yesterday I was scrolling though my bandcamp favorites and was reminded of the gorgeous simplicity of Baby Grill, an indie pop group from DC. Their demo iphone/garageband recordings are haunting, especially the song “Darling.” It reminds me of the Jenny Holzer quote, “Turn soft and lovely any time you have a chance.” The beauty of this song is that it gives you that chance, musically and lyrically it entices you to reach the softest corners of your soul and fall into them without fear.
“You can be lonely with me
I adore you, my darling ooh
You can be lovely with me
You can be anything you wanna be”
I really love these two demos and cannot wait to hear more from this band.
Check out Baby Grill at one of their upcoming shows.
- Tuesday, 7/25 at Love + Solidarity Collective (also with fk mt. and Antonia)
- Friday, 8/4 at Comet Ping Pong (with Trace Mountains and Slight)
