Single Review : Baby Strange – Pleasure City

Posted by Hannah Moore

Baby Strange - Pleasure City

Glasgow three-piece, Baby Strange‘s, new single pulls you in with rumbling rhythm and a hook that you will find yourself humming along to for the rest of the day.

The single, Pleasure City, takes a poppier turn from the dark and dirty likes of previous singles VVV and Luver.  Despite this difference from some of their earlier tracks, it still very much follows the Baby Strange of style of ‘bangers’ with fierce guitar riffs that you can move your feet to.

In fact Pleasure City cultivates a mass sing-along feeling, something that was evident from the band’s recent gig at St Luke’s where it got a very warm reception.  Fitting perhaps that it was well received in the band’s home town, and their affinity with Glasgow is evident in the video, as the lead character gets led astray and spends all his money on a mad night on Sauchiehall Street.  We’ve all been there haven’t we?
