The Babe Rainbow’s latest single “Johny Says Stay Cool” sounds like a track composed in the 60s that feels like a commercial song you heard during your childhood. You can’t really remember the ad, but there is a brainwash-y hook within the strumming chords that takes over your brain and transports you into a groovy funk – it’s like watching TV where your brain wanders off to an alternative dimension. The megaphonized vocals drives you further away from reality. Indulge:

“Johny Says Stay Cool” is from the trio’s debut self-titled album, which will be out on September 1st. Comprised of Jack “Cool-Breeze” and Angus Darling The Hothouse Flower, the Aussie duo started songsculpting together since middle school. It wasn’t until 2015 when they met Venezuelan pianist Lu-Lu-Felix Domingo that Babe Rainbow was fully formed. Make sure you memorize their names before seeing them live:
