Even though we’ve seen stills of it, the full video for Baby Alpaca's Wild Child literally just stunned us for little over five minutes. The curly-haired, soft romantic rock sellin’ singer strolls around the desert, an orange, smokey place full of pure beauty. He is not alone though, as a mysterious, magical woman somehow brings quite the crowd to the party.
Happy to bring you the exclusive premiere of the self-titled debut EP of Brooklyn via Cincinatti wild child Baby Alpaca, a blonde-haired curly singer-songwriter we’ve shown a bit of love in the past already. Ranging from playful to emotional, you’ll learn to love the soft pop-rock of the EP in no time, just like you’ll love actual baby alpacas. Streaming in full below (for the rest of this week), yet available via Atlas Chair digitally and on vinyl worldwide now.
"You said I was a loser / said I was a boozer" has got to be one of the best opening lyrics of the year so far, good thing it’s matched with an equally great song. Wild Child is the EP opener of Baby Alpaca's forthcoming debut EP, an EP of which we premiered the jaw-dropping Sea of Dreams a while back. Wild Child is, as the song suggest, a bit more adventurous but never a distant cry from the soft pop-rock we know from Baby Alpaca.
Besides baby alpaca’s being among the most cute animals ever, Baby Alpaca are one of the bands you are about to become very, very excited about. It’s the project of Chris Kittrell, a Cincinatti-resident that moved to New York and started out a band with drummer Robert Philips and guitarist Zach McMillan.
After playing some shows here and there, uploading some tracks to Soundcloud (definitely give Run With You a spin), he’s gearing up for an EP release on new label Atlas Chair on June 25. The first taste of this 4-track EP is Sea of Dreams, which channels The Smiths with it’s dreamy, light dada-rock production - think soft, romantic rock that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside. His debut EP (which also holds Wild Child, On The Road and Run With You) ranges from playful to emotional, but always leaves you impressed. Hit play, close your eyes, and step into the world of Baby Alpaca, taking his first little steps right here at DN.
PS if you happen to be in the LA area next week, go catch Baby Alpaca for free at the Echo for us please.
