Baby Dave



Saturday 22.10.22



The first solo venture of Slaves’ singing drummer Isaac Holman, Baby Dave highlights the sardonic reality of mundane suburban life through lo-fi, wobbling beats and monotone dictation. Produced by Damon Albarn, Baby Dave’s self-released, DIY debut album Monkey Brain features jolty playground rhythms and nuances similar to those of the greats that have come before him. Drawing comparisons to Damon Albarn, Suggs and The Streets’ Mike Skinner, Baby Dave’s style is an acquired taste – or as he puts it – “people might not ‘get it’. If they do, that’s great. If they don’t that’s fine.”
