About

Babe are a 4-piece electronic pop group based between Glasgow, London, Brussels and Bordeaux.

Started by two ex-Findo Gask members, Gerard Black (François & the Atlas Mountains) and Michael Marshall, the intention was to take Gerard's songs and see them through to their final conclusion, letting them develop naturally along the way. The results are a much darker affair, with Gerard's aerialist melodies and baroque chord progressions being enforced with grittier yet spacious arrangements, polyrhythmic percussion, found sound and analogue synths.

With the help of Lauren Mayberry on backing vocals, Thomas Ogden on guitar, Michael Marshall on drums and Amaury Ranger on bass and percussion, Babe have put together a twelve-track body of work; written, recorded, produced and mixed by Gerard and Michael, bounced back and forth from city to city via dropbox.

In the betweenwhiles of an extremely intensive François & the Atlas touring schedule, Babe have managed to squeeze in the odd concert here and there, supporting Everything Everything, Anna Calvi, Slow Club, Au Revoir Simone, and François along the way.
