Premiere: Baybs – Drifter

Baybs is an American singer songwriter with a haunting and unique style.

By Graeme Smith

New track Drifter opens with a raspy electro-acoustic guitar. Nico-esque vocals float in and you know you’re in for something a bit special. I found myself transported to the wide open Great Plains in Drifter. Musically, it’s a little bit country and the soaring chorus declaring “I’m seeing the stars again” invoke the undisturbed open night skies of the prairie.

Baybs is San Francisco-based singer songwriter Craig Jacobs. The vocals in Drifter are delivered by Melissa Russi. Drifter really is a stand out piece of music and I’d love to hear more from Baybs. You can check out the track below.
