The Girobabies create baffling funk-soul grunge music with a dollop of psychedelic dystopia and a pinch of gutter-rock utopian stardust. 

The Glasgow based band released their debut album on vinyl  ‘Who Took Utopia?’ to critical acclaim. This was a self-produced and self-released follow up to previous mini LPs ‘Bus Stop Apocalypse’ & ‘Social Not Working’ where the Girobabies used an indie/grunge, almost punk, backbeat to deliver pertinent political/social observations akin to the likes of the Sleaford Mods, The Streets & The Fall. 

Since the release of the latest album they have played a sold out Glasgow Barrowlands  , played on live television  and were personally asked to support one of their all time heroes and influences Steve Mason (The Beta Band) 

They have also gained celebrity fans in the unlikely form of Paolo Nutini, Paul Heaton and Alabama 3 who recently called them ‘The Best Rock n Roll band in Scotland ‘ 

The Girobabies mix a varied range of influences from each band member to create a sonic assault of the senses that weave between an insane party and an intense comedown with storytelling, humour and anguish all heavy in the mix.

The band’s European tour was disrupted by lockdown restrictions but they hope to get on the road soon with new material to follow up on their most recent singles ‘Fetching Pitchfork’ and ‘Dear Monday’. 

They also used the time off the road to work on new Girobabies material plus release albums under their side projects aliases Jackal Trades, The Twistettes ,  Gordy Duncan JR and Minerva Wakes.
