unveils new video for “Mothers”
out 5th October on Barsuk Records
Steady Holiday premiered her new video for “Mothers” on The 405 who wrote, ‘Mothers’ is another example of Steady Holiday’s ability to wield substantial poise and power through her understated yet cinematic musical surroundings.”
Dre Babinski tells us, “Some have a hard time distinguishing compassion from the slippery slope of altruism. This character is one of them, hesitant to ‘give an inch’, anticipating what will be asked of her next. Maybe it’s more convenient to keep the door locked next time.”
Steady Holiday, the indie-pop project of LA’s Dre Babinski, is releasing her new record Nobody’s Watching on 5th October on Barsuk Records. Produced by Gus Seyffert (Roger Waters, Beck, Bedouine), Nobody’s Watching folds a sense of modern age paranoia into Steady Holiday’s evocative soundscapes, resulting in an album that’s both dreamy and unsettling. It includes themes like “greed, fear and self-interest; the ugly and troubling edges of human nature,” which are evident in the singles, “Nobody’s Watching”and “Who’s Gonna Stop Us”. “There are so many horrible examples of manipulation and impunity in the news right now that feel unprecedentedly dramatic, but it’s important to remember that these figures have been around forever,” Babinski explains.
Nobody’s Watching is available for pre-order now.
