The Babe Rainbow Announce National Tour
The intergalatic astronauts of psychedelia, and ‘three-piece third-eyed sons of mother nature’, THE BABE RAINBOW from none other than Rainbow Bay, Coolangatta have announced their plans for an upcoming national tour to our Aussie cities of Jade. Far out, man.
Sending messages of good vibrations, inner wellness, and just all-round trippy shenanigans the boys behind THE BABE RAINBOW are packing their bags in order to hit the road over late-February and throughout March to play a long line of shows all round the country.
With a sound and look straight out of the 60’s, THE BABE RAINBOW certainly feels like a welcome throwback to a time and sound that is reminiscent of a place between psychedelic pop and garage rock packed full of kaleidoscopic motifs, flower chains, flared pants and good times.
“Reality is a technicolour dream, makes you feel like you floating in a river upstream.” Lyrics from their single ‘Love Forever’, vocals buried beneath tripped-out reverb and delay, Beatles-esque guitar tones, all slightly awash with a certain vibrato effect – as if the video and song were taken from a 2nd or 3rd generation VHS tape.
You can be darn sure to hear all this and more at one of their many upcoming live shows around the country in the months to come as part of THE BABE RAINBOW’s ‘Journey To The Centre Of The Universe’ Tour. Dates below:
