KNICKERS - My Baby's Just A Baby (Limited edition red 7" vinyl + free MP3 download)
01. My Baby’s Just A Baby (But I Love Him So)
02. Are You Ready Girl?
03. A Thousand Ways
They barely had 3 concerts under their belt, but the garage rock'n'roll with 60s melodies and psychedelic pop from this London quintet led by Simon (THE LOVES/SIMON LOVE & THE OLD ROMANTICS) has completely won us over.
With Sarah’s powerful and versatile voice in the lead, KNICKERS are releasing this EP with 4 solid songs - the huge hit 'My Baby’s Just A Baby (But I Love Him So)' has rock'n'roll echoes pushed by hallucinogenic synthesisers.
'Are You Ready Girl?' is a cover of a 60s DAVE DAVIES song originally thought of as a solo album for the KINKS member, but it was never released until decades later - a song that shows tendencies towards the velvety soul of SAM COOKE and OTIS REDDING.
'A Thousand Ways' seems like THE BYRDS’ but it winds up sounding like BELLE & SEBASTIAN decided to play some Northern Soul.
However 'Darling' leans toward the sweetest girl-group sounds, twisted by distorted guitars and aggressive, dirty drums. It gets stuck in our ears with no hope of ever getting it of our heads.
