Dutch Trio My Baby To Play Birmingham This Week

My Baby are in the middle of a UK tour following the UK release of their third album ‘Prehistoric Rhythm’ released back in August via Glitterhouse Records.

Consisting of Dutch brother-sister-duo Sheik (drums) and Cato van Dyck (vocals, guitar, banjo, violin) and New Zealand’s Daniel “daFreez” Johnston (guitars), My Baby are currently receiving feverish acclaim and national airplay across 6Music, BBC Radio 2, Beats 1 and over 60 regional radio stations.

The incendiary ‘Prehistoric Rhythm’ takes you on an unorthodox musical magic carpet ride of cosmic theatricality and thumping dance beats, channeling primal awareness amidst hypnotic drums, shimmering soulful vocals, and psychedelic riffs on the back of rootsy blues and dubbed out funk.

The trio create an imaginative landscape with Cato as protagonist and figurehead of protest, voodoo priestess, bearer of broken hearts, both aggressor on the plains and keeper of the peace, enchanting, meditating, screaming, loving and dreaming.

After touring with Seasick Steve and Larry Graham, My Baby’s live show has been reconstructed to augment the sound and vision of ‘Prehistoric Rhythm’, emulating tribal celebration and creating a phantasmagorical universe the audience becomes part of.

The band has garnered emphatic praise for their singular live psychedelic experience. After being the first ever Dutch band to play the main stage at Isle of Wight Festival earlier this year, My Baby hit four blistering live shows across Glastonbury Festival and will bring their incredible live show to a handful of UK dates across the rest of this week before returning to Mainland Europe.

My Baby’s remaining UK dates are:

October
4th – Dingwalls, London
5th – Night & Day, Manchester
6th – Actress & Bishop, Birmingham
8th – Con Club, Lewes
