Margate singer-songwriter BABii has released a new track, Carniivore, ahead of her debut album Hiide (you see the double ii thing going on, right?) which comes out on July 5th via Deathwaltz Originals.
Produced by uber-producer Adrian Sherwood, BABii makes this sort of smoky electronic pop/R&B, Sherwood does a shine and polish job on the production, which makes the sharp songwriting and thoughtful wordplay sparkle, as these synths cascade and something akin to an 808 handclap mixes it up with this trappy percussion.

Of the album, BABii says .“When writing it, I was still trying to keep a dying relationship alive, but it was falling apart because of secrets being kept, I was also his secret and there was a lot of things hidden between us.” going on to describe it as her way of crying “All of the tracks are fragments of the same theme, and capture the album as a whole,” she says. “Its such a diverse set of emotions that all bleed into one another, and also reflect each other, and at times can even contradict each other. They only make sense as a whole.”
