New Video: The 60s Inspired Sounds and Visuals of Melbourne Australia’s The Babe Rainbow

Comprised of Bryon Bay, Australia-born and based founding members, Jack “Cool-Breeze” and Angus Darling The Hothouse Flower and Venezuelan-born pianist Lu-Lu-Felix Domingo, the Australia-based trio The Babe Rainbow can trace their origins to when its founding duo started a songwriting partnership while in middle school; however, the project started in earnest in late 2015 when traveling through France, the project’s founding duo met Venezuelan pianist Domingo.

The trio’s recently released, self-titled debut was produced by King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard‘s Stu Mackenzie and from the album’s latest single “Johny Stays Cool,” the trio specialize in lo-fi, off-kilter beach funk featuring African Diaspora-influenced rhythms and a breezy, Tropicalia-like melody — and much like The B52s, they manage to mischievously evoke 60s psych pop and surf rock.

Directed by Kristofski and starring Rony Jacques, the video features Jacques shaking what his momma gave him on the beach while listening to the song — and his dancing manages to be 60s inspired.

The Aussie trio will be embarking on a North American tour and it begins with an October 5, 2017 stop at Baby’s All Right. Check out the rest of the tour dates below.
