Babe Announce Early 2014 Tour And Share New Song 'Dot & Carry One'

Babe have unveiled a new song from their debut album, Volery Flighty, due 10th March on Moshi Moshi. 'Dot & Carry One' is the album's opening track and is typical of the elegant, Anglo / Franco inspired sounds found throughout it. It was, says, Gerard Black, "initially supposed to sound like the Cocteau Twins but thankfully Michael said "you can't do that" and it got pulled in a thousand different directions".

Formed in the summer of 2010 by ex-Findo Gask members Gerard Black (currently with Francois And The Atlas Mountains) and Michael Marshall along with Thomas Ogden and Amaury Ranger, Babe have been making music across the channel from their native homes in Glasgow and Bordeaux.

They have announced their first show of 2014 at Ace Hotel, London, on 23rd February ahead of the release of their debut album the following month. They have also confirmed shows in Glasgow and Lyon. Dates as follows:

BABE LIVE 2014
13 Feb - Paris, Frwrks Festival
23 Feb- London (ACE Hotel) FREE SHOW
28 Feb - Glasgow (Glad Cafe) 
10 March - London (The Waiting Room) (Album Launch Party)
30 May - Lyon (Nuits Sonores Festival) w/ Dam Mantle, Ubre Blanca & Kode9 

Volery Flighty, conceived and produced entirely by Gerard and the band, and featuring friends from Glasgow's indomitable music scene (including Lauren Mayberry on backing vocals and Ricky Egan from Tangles), couples the group's international outlook through Gerard's chamber pop sensibilities to foster something at times pensive and oblique, at others direct, fun and buoyant. An off-kilter humour and sideways glance at life runs throughout the record.

Five short films successfully funded by a Kickstarter campaign will accompany the album's release.

Volery Flighty Tracklisting:
Dot And Carry One
Aerialist Barbette
Grotto
Tripwire
Bx Betweenwhiles
