Rising pop group Babylamb aren't likely to forget their queer Irish roots, and we can't wait to see what they bring us next.
It's a superbly catchy track with clever lyricism from the queer group that's sure to earn them a slew of new fans.
The quartet known as Babylamb – Tobias, Rian, Laoise and Cian – have already racked up over 100,000 streams of ‘Bodyright', and are hoping to make even bigger waves with 'Icky'.
The synth-heavy song speaks to the youthful nostalgia of kissing strangers at parties, missing the nightlife and human connection that the Covid-19 pandemic has taken away (for now).
A universal experience within the single, 'Icky' is fun, doesn't take itself seriously and is undeniably relatable to a wide audience.
"Baby, come save me/ You leave me hanging in your head / Christine-queen-day-dream / Of a super chronic love affair," is surely a shout-out to queer artist and mesmerising performer Christine and the Queens.
“Writing ‘Icky’ was like an attempted astral-projection. Smooching a stranger at a party is a righteous little act of living that Babylamb have been missing and mourning”, Tobias comments.
“You’re screwed up, out of control, nauseous and you miss it like crazy. In ‘Icky’, we’re not quite ready to touch hearts, but to touch at all would be a good start”.
