Moving on, we are joining forces with Steph Barker aka Baby Bulldog for the release of the new single “Work On Things,” a brass track that fits the themes of the song with the angsty lyrics blends perfectly with the indie pop melodies.
About the song, Barker comments “I wrote Work On Things on a day off from tour. I was home and didn’t wanna leave. It was the first song I wrote as Baby Bulldog because when I finished it everything clicked, I had discovered my sound. It was the beginning of Baby Bulldog. I wrote and produced it in my apt in Silver Lake and the next day I left to continue to tour with Coast Modern. I also really do have a dope down pillow and I love it so much.”
Baby Bulldog (aka Steph Barker) is a one-woman project from LA via New Hampshire. All performed by Baby herself from behind her drum kit, the tracks are queer love stories told with the everyday lyricism of Courtney Barnett and the scuzzed out pop hooks of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
In bringing queer narratives to the front, Baby is part of a seismic shift in the pop paradigm. Like contemporary artists Julien Baker and Pronoun, Baby Bulldog feels absolutely no reason to add to rock and pop’s unhealthy overload of hetero-normative stories and writes autobiographical tracks about female protagonists without thinking twice.
