Number One Babe Team: debut album See You Later out 6/9, plus release show
When we last caught up with Number One Babe Team back in early February, they dropped hints regarding their debut album and some of the inspiration behind it. Like for many others, the group had extra time during the pandemic to sit with their thoughts, and that's where this album comes from. The album will include their 2021 single “Fever American Dream,” a summer song with punchy lyrics all about that good old “American dream.” There's plenty more to explore on this debut, including the heart-wrenching beginning to the album “Some Time” It starts out slow with melancholy lyrics and soft guitar that reflect that bummer feeling you get when things are heavy. Number One Babe Team will debut See You Later on BandCamp June 2, followed by a release everywhere June 9. That evening they'll hit the stage at The International with guests Musor and Goldie and The Guise. Catch the 21+ show at 8 p.m. that evening for $5 before the show and $6.90 the day of.
