about

Catapulting to the forefront of Melbourne’s indie-garage scene with an impressive catalog of standout singles, fledging Melbourne four-piece Baby Blue are excited to reveal their latest addition ‘Fire And Ice’. An instant classic, the new single is the first taste of Baby Blue’s forthcoming EP Do What You Like set to be released later in the
year by Melbourne based label Neat Lawn, and following the success of their independently released 2017 debut In My Mind.

Led by the endearingly honest Rhea Caldwell with members of Courtney Barnett, Coastbusters and 19th Century Strongmen, Baby Blue offers frank confessions and unabashed tales of intimate moments atop a distinct surf-garage- pop sound. ‘Fire And Ice’ is the complete embodiment of this. Inspired by a Robert Frost poem of the
same name, ‘Fire And Ice’ offers jangly guitar riffs, reverberated vocals, momentous bass lines, and psychedelic tropes to carry a cathartic, almost meditative mantra of nonchalant vacancy and human autonomy.

“I was staying at my mothers house in Lennox Head fiddling around with an acoustic guitar there and thinking a lot about how the world is on its way to destroying humans through climate change and how my relationship at the time was falling apart because my partner and I were very different people with different ways of navigating and communicating our emotions. I just started playing the first chords
over and over again to try to take my mind away from itself and the song spilled out from there. Luckily, in these times I find solace in the fact that nothing is permanent and I guess that’s what I’m essentially trying to say with this song. Everything ends so do what you like with your life.” – Rhea Caldwell

lyrics

I am vacant
you are vacant
dreamily vacant

tell me all of your secrets
I'll tell you mine

Fire and Ice

We are one
but we are two
you and me
me and you

say goodbye to your future
do what you like

It all ends in the end

Fire and Ice

It all ends in the end
