Baby Guru – IV LP
Athens, Greece psych-pop four-piece Baby Guru have announced their new album “IV”, follows the group’s 2015 mini-album “Sunshine Special” and is out on April 7th via Inner Ear. Below, hear the first track from the album, “Tell Me What You’re Made Of,” and check out the cover artwork and full tracklist.
After releasing their third full-length LP “Marginalia” in 2014, the members of Baby Guru spent the last years focusing on their individual careers. Singer Prins Obi and drummer King Elephant both released solo efforts and bassist Sir Kosmiche joined the psych-rock outfit “Chickn” and produced the debut album of Molimo (an African duo from Congo, performing live in the streets of Athens).
This year, Baby Guru’s fourth proper LP finds the band as a quartet and willing to push the boundaries once again, delivering their richest set of songs to date, both musically and lyrically.
They remain open to new directions without forgetting their roots and trademark sound and they seem mature enough to convey their feelings and thoughts on everyday struggle, (cosmic) unfulfilled romances, the illusions of fame, half-forgotten dreams, imaginary folk bands and disco freaks. “IV” is a hymn to group life and the work of four childhood friends who are seeking genuine forms of expression in a cold-hearted world.
Baby Guru are: Prins Obi (vocals,keys), King Elephant (drums), Sir Kosmiche (bass) and Kon Kon (guitar).
