Overbored by dream pop duo Babygirl is one of our favourite songs of the year, which makes this two week late post unfortunate. Nonetheless, their four track EP, As You Wish is here and it’s all kinds of magical.
Opener It’s Getting Late is an infectious fuzzy tune that details Kirsten Clark’s exhausted hopes and dreams as she sits on the sidelines waiting for more to happen. The perfect dream pop gem Overbored is followed by the catchy Everything’s Happening Without Me with its pleasant and sweet strums for a classic sounding indie pop single. The difference being lyrics about lacking determination and enthusiasm that provides a nice contrast, and something the more adrift will appreciate. The Toronto duo change it up on closer Unwant You, a piano driven ballad featuring both Clark and Cameron Breithaupt’s tender vocals and a fear of both giving in and loss.
Charming instrumentals and uncertainty and doubt blanket this too short EP for a wonderful, melancholic dream pop debut. Babygirl is high on our Toronto radar and we cannot wait to hear and see more. Stream As You Wish below.
