Babe Announce Debut Album Volery Flighty along with Kickstarter Campaign

Babe Gerard portrait chez mr porter - Lola PertsoswkyBabe have announced that their debut album, Volery Flighty, is due out March 10 on Moshi Moshi along with a Kickstarter to fund five short films to accompany the album.

Formed in the summer of 2010 by ex Findo Gask members Gerard Black (currently with Francois And The Atlas Mountains) and Michael Marshall (now with Bill Wells & Aiden Moffatt) along with Thomas Ogden and Amaury Ranger, Babe have been making music across the channel from their native homes in Glasgow and Bordeaux.

Their debut album Volery Flighty – conceived and produced entirely by Gerard and the band, and featuring friends from Glasgow’s indomitable music scene (including Lauren Mayberry on backing vocals) – reflects the group’s international outlook through Gerard’s chamber pop sensibilities to foster something at times pensive and oblique, at others direct, fun and buoyant.

Babe previewed ‘Tilt’, another track from the album alongside a Kickstarter campaign set up by uber fans Rob and Tom in order to create five short films to accompany tracks on Volery Flighty
