‘Bodyright’ is the debut single from Babylamb. It’s a brash, starry-eyed banger about self-acceptance. It’s about seeing ourselves as multiple, rather than just individuals so that we can understand and celebrate the differences in each other’s bodies, and act in empathy. It’s about rejecting the way our medias distort and other our bodies and having a bop revelling in our togetherness.

Sax solos, groovy sampling, tape-deck synths, trappy hi-hats and big brash vocals, releasing on all platforms December 1.

‘Bodyright’ 100% independently written, recorded, performed and produced by the three members of Babylamb.

Babylamb (formerly FLOWRS) is an Irish pop trio based in Dublin and Limerick and founded in 2018, made up of musicians Tobias Barry, Rían Stephens and Laoise Fleming. They are just starting their rocket ship journey, playing a number of boisterous gigs in the past year and building a rep for a dynamic live show. They’ve played across Dublin (Workman’s, Whelan’s, Underground, etc.), Limerick and Galway with the likes of ELKIN, St. Bishop, ELKAE, Nerves and PureGrand.

Babylamb go in for intimate vocals, live-sampled beats, fluffy guitars, sparky piano and bouncy choruses. Lyrics range from the confessional to the thematic, from tongue-in-cheek to the confrontational. The music is bright, distinctive, a little bit weird, and influenced by pop, alt-pop, R&B and the funky designs on bus seats. All that is distilled into an impassioned celebration of the heart on the sleeve.
