Scared To Dance and For The Rabbits alldayer with Sweet Baboo plus Marine, Adwaith, Young Romance, Deerful, Panic Pocket and Red Red Eyes. Sweet Baboo is Stephen Black. An eclectic and intriguing songwriter, Sweet Baboo is a master of gorgeous upbeat acoustic ditties, psychedelic exploration and wide-screen 1960's pop. While likely to showcase material from across his impressively eclectic back catalogue, the set should borrow heavily from last year's Wild Imagination, "the perfect pick-me-up to the winter of our discontent." It was an album written as an antidote to our times, an attempt to free himself of negativity and dare to dream of a brighter tomorrow. Musically, the record stepped away from the Harry Nilsson-esque love song of 2015's The Boombox Ballads and into a world of positivity, the resultant music sounded like the missing middle ground between Arthur Russell and The Beach Boys. An intriguing artist, always pushing at the boundaries of any attempt to pigeonhole himself or his music, Sweet Baboo is firmly established as one of music's most intriguing experimenters and most important voices.
