Killer New Drummer for Balloons Kill Babies




Shortly after I was introduced to Balloons Kill Babies at this year’s QMA’s, they took some time out. Thrilled to learn of the emerging bands' successes I feel it is my duty to introduce you. Change is inevitable; at times it’s swift & other times it takes a little longer to get all the important bits right. Fortunately for Balloons Kill Babies, taking their time led to a massive WIN/WIN situation. 

When a change in line up is necessary you can’t rush finding the right piece to fit the puzzle and find the right piece they did. The stars aligned for BKB when none other than Scott Davey, previously form Dead Letter Circus, became available. Spending a period of time looking for the right talent has paid off. The three lads clicked instantly, Christian stating they have so much in common with their music styles.

A growing number of compositions plumping up the swag, the three piece’s rehearsal sessions this year have been so productive. Founding member Christian confirmed they have had continual focus on free-jamming and working on new material, and word is we can look forward to the new release EP "Prodromal" in early 2017. BKB’s sound engenders progressive, atmospheric rock; strong influences in classic metal are also heavily apparent.

This is a solid new discovery, see for yourself.

Filling the Girl Punk Voiid

Walking into the Foundry early, I was pretty keen on the night's line-up. There was a crowd starting to mill around the stage and a bit of a buzz to be honest, tonight’s headliners are the irrepressible Bleeding Knees Club with The Pinheadz & Voiid supporting…this was not the first I’d heard of the ostentatious girl group.  In fact I was looking forward to seeing some girlshreik, it had been a while since I’d heard an all girl punk band that impressed me to be honest.

The girls were all so comfortable in their skin on stage, an electric presence that flaunted true punk ego. They sauntered onto stage, and with an almighty bass line they launched straight into it as did the crowd. Voiid certainly have built a local following and everyone was writhing & cascading all over the joint with enthusiasm. Obvious influences came shining through, I decided I needed to have a little chat with the girls to spread the word on the hot asfuck sounds hitting my earholes…
So you got together…

Journey through Desire Path.

Talking with Yeo, I felt like I was chatting to a friend, he is humble and honest. We spoke about the themes intertwined in 'Desire Path' and how each collaboration came about.
Your last album was really playful both in the music and the lyrics.  Listening to your new album ‘Desire Path’, I felt like a it’s journey through different relationships. 
Yeah, I think even if the lyrics get really literal, music to me is based on emotion and emotions are kind of nothing without a relationship to give it context I feel.
Well when you think about, it relationships rule our lives, whether it be a friendship, family or a work colleague they are always an influence; but I feel quite a few of these tracks are about love relationships?
There’s a few on this album, and I haven’t done this for a while. The last album had a couple, but I feel like I got more honest on this one. 
I agree, you have a great way with words and that draws me in to your music. I take an expression of human emotions and …
