The Babe Rainbow – who hail from Australia – will release their debut self-titled album on September 1 via 30th Century Records/Columbia. The album was produced by Eric Moore from King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. Today they reveal the blissful “Johny Says Stays Cool” which will transport you back to the grooves of the 1960s yet with a modern dreamy twist.

The Babe Rainbow will be touring North America in October with dates kicking off October 5 at Brooklyn‘s Baby’s All Right. The tour also takes them to The Echoplex in Los Angeles on October 17 and concludes in Whistler, BC on October 26. All dates listed below (including UK and Europe) with more to be confirmed. The band were last in the US in March supporting Allah-La’s and played to packed rooms that included stops at New York City’s Webster Hall, Chicago’s Thalia Hall and The Mohawk in Austin, TX.
The seeds of The Babe Rainbow were sown when Jack “Cool-Breeze” and Angus Darling The Hothouse Flower started a song writing partnership in middle school, but the band didn’t fully-bloom until late in 2015 when, travelling through France, the duo met Venezuelan pianist Lu-Lu-Felix Domingo and became a trio.
The Babe Rainbow have already shared the magical “Peace Blossom Boogy” and the album’s teaser track “Losing Something.” The band has previously released a self-titled EP featuring the single “Secret Enchanted Broccoli Forest.”
