Song of the Day #780: Baby Cool
We gave Brisbane’s Nice Biscuit a very overdue Song Of The Day last year. Today’s song is from Baby Cool, a side project by Nice Biscuit’s co-front woman Grace Cuell.
With its prominent pedal steel, quiet drums and ethereal and slightly haunting vocals, Daydream, reminds me of the Cowboy Junkies but there’s also a brightness that makes it sound very sun-drenched 60’s West Coast. A bit Mazzy Star, if you will. It might start off as being very countrified but the psychedelia of Nice Biscuit hasn’t been forgotten, with the introduction of fuzz guitar giving the last third of the song a much more dreamy blissed out feel.
Baby Cool’s debut album, Earthling on the Road to Self Love, is out on 10 February 2023 before hitting the road for shows around Australia in March and April, including the Nine Lives festival and supporting King Gizzard at their Brisbane show.
