Discovery: 45ACIDBABIES

From the name of the band and the title of their track Walking The Cow you can tell that Dutch electro pop band 45ACIDBABIES are something a bit different.

By Graeme Smith

45ACIDBABIES list among their influences Die Antwoord and Sleigh Bells and a combination of the two is probably about as close I can get to describing their sound. Walking The Cow is swaggering, anthemic nu-wave urban rock. They really do follow that Sleigh Bells tradition of redefining music for a new generation. It’s certainly not for everyone, but one suspects they’re not out to please people.

These guys are currently blowing up online and have had music featured on the TV show Homeland. They will be touring Europe in the autumn. Check out Walking The Cow below and draw your own conclusions.
