The Crimea - Baby Boom
"This song is all about the constant urge to have sex". These are the words of Crimea songwriter and frontman Davey MacManus, on the subject of this, the third single to be lifted from current album Tragedy Rocks. Baby Boom is an excellent song, strangely hypnotic, full of a longing sadness, a haunting guitar sound carrying the song through. The instrumentation is superb - a fragile harmonica, twinking piano and some wonderful backing vocals.
The Crimea are due to play this years V-Festival, and have a few live dates lined up in Wales for September. They are also doing a gig at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival on the 25th August. For more details, see their website.
