BABE PUNCH, an alternative rock four-piece hailing from Nottingham/Derby, just released their brand new single ‘Wildfire’. Described as “youthful, eccentric, electric” (Louder Than War) and having “furious drums, distorted guitars and infectious choruses” (Indie+Tonic), BABE PUNCH shaped their distinctive sound around grunge and punk influences such as Hole, PJ Harvey and Drenge, refined by their varied individual tastes ranging from Stevie Nicks and Jefferson Airplane to Led Zeppelin.
Known for their “raucous live show” (Clash Magazine), the band play live regularly, and are especially active in the DIY and punk scenes throughout the country. They have also been part of line-ups including those of Y Not, Dot to Dot, Splendour, Off the Record and Beat The Streets festivals and have played with the likes of The Cribs, Hinds, Vant and Ezra Furman.
‘The new song was written during a time of disillusionment and division in the UK and the rest of the world, particularly involving politics. We wanted it to serve as a reminder that while anger is valid and important, kindness and strength have to exist alongside it to really unite people.’
