Babe Club Share Bittersweet Nostalgia on Their Latest “Middle of Nowhere”

For Fans Of: Boygenius, Lucy Dacus, Julian Baker, Alvvays, Sasami

Indie duo Babe Club are back with another release titled “Middle of Nowhere,” about the bittersweet nostalgia of being a musician. Accompanied by an official music video.

“There’s something about the bittersweet nostalgia of being a musician. Maybe it’s just being human really. Sometimes you’re absolutely miserable, but then a couple years later you look back with a sweet reverence that maybe romanticizes the past a bit. But maybe it was actually beautiful and you couldn’t see it at the time. Now we’re in this aggressively stimulating digital space, and there’s an itch to get back into those raw spaces, back to the middle of nowhere.”

“Middle of Nowhere” is host to a cornucopia of dynamic fluctuation, adding and removing
elements so that the arrangement breathes as though a living organism.

Charleston-based Babe Club makes cool-toned synth pop. The band is the brainchild of Jenna Desmond and Corey Campbell: After a few years playing huge stages and major festivals all over the country with Americana act SUSTO they departed and began to carve out their own sound. Ultimately landing on something dreamy and melancholic..It sounds a little like Phoebe Bridgers meets Gwen Stefani, Clairo meets the Cardigans.

The band has been on a trajectory of releasing singles after their debut EP – Remember This Feeling. Their single “Lazy Lover,” tells the story about being depressed and being in a relationship. “My whole identity was wrapped up in being a musician, that when the pandemic happened I felt pretty hopeless. I felt like a “moldy strawberry”. Once sweet, turned worthless and disgusting. It’s embarrassing to admit sometimes, when life is so precious.

Since its release, the song Lazy Lover has been featured in Taco Bell’s national TV ad. They’ve been busy releasing singles and have supported artist such as Shakey Graves Houndmouth and American Authors. The band will be playing High Water Music festival alongside Noah Kahn, The Flaming Lips, and Hozier.
