London’s enigmatic sister duo Waterbaby announce debut album 22°Halo due May, alongside brand new single “Strawberry Jam”.
Peckham-based Waterbaby are set to release their debut album this year. Fully self-produced the project is a kaleidoscopic odyssey blending otherworldly and experimental electronica with choral singing, folk, kraut and pop.
Waterbaby’s insular and feminine sonic world showcases inventive song structures backed by dizzying layers of production – all crafted on their stash of lost & found analogue gear in their South East London studio squashed between Hyperdub’s headquarters and a mechanics garage.
Speaking on the album, the pair state: “The album is a trip from birth to death, a journey that begins in the morning when a garbage truck drowns out your siren song and ends at night in the cinema of your dreams, watching your life play out on the big screen”.
To coincide with the album announcement, they release their new single, “Strawberry Jam”, a 7-minute long ethereal voyage that takes the listener through twists and turns, slipping in and out of dream-like passages and weighty production. In their own words: “it’s a mood swing”.
