London-based dance punk/post disco outfit Baba Ali (made up of Baba Doherty and Nik Balchin) have unleashed their new single “Laugh Like a Bomb”.
The song serves as the title track of their upcoming sophomore album ‘Laugh Like a Bomb‘, set to arrive on April 28 via Memphis Industries. Pre-order your copy here.
Laugh Like a Bomb finds inspiration on the duo’s view of life in two major cities, London and New York.
“We have an understanding of these two cities being a chaotic balance between endless possibility and cold ruthlessness,” Baba notes. “Everyone’s here for their slice of the cake and you never know how far some will go to get it. It takes a certain level of madness, we think, to be able to endure all that the city demands and still come out smiling.”
Take a listen below.
