A bizarre and slightly unhinged blend of 8 bit synths and Alexis’ trademark vocal delivery. It’s straight up pop at it’s heart, with a catchy chorus for you to bash the steering wheel and sing along to in the car. The lyrics themselves could have been lifted straight from a 50’s rock n roll ballad.
Alexis says of the song: “‘Oh Baby’ is an exuberant love song, with a nod to the music I love by the likes of Alex Chilton and Paul McCartney. It was produced by Joe Goddard and features John Coxon on guitar and some Hot Chip bandmembers playing on it too. I wrote it in about the time it takes to listen to it, and the finished performance was recorded live in the studio.”
The other nine tracks on Beautiful Thing are produced by Tim Goldsworthy, co-founder of Mo Wax and DFA Recordings and member of UNKLE, and mark the first time Alexis has made a solo album with a producer. Watch the video for the previously shared title track here.
