I knew I wanted it to be a duet and our friend and label owner Cayle decided to be bold and dream big and asked Laura Jane Grace if she’d be interested in being involved. Laura is an ICON, so it goes without saying we lost our minds when she got back to us and said she liked the song and wanted to sing on it. Laura’s voice is so immediate and perfect, it has taken the song to a whole new level. It’s a total honour and dream to have Laura involved.
A celebration of humanity and all that connects us, Together, Baby! is an album that is brimming with heart and charm.
From opening track “Radical,” a Spanish language punk tribute to the Latin American protest chant, to the sugary 90s scuzz of “I Like You” which features vocals from punk icon Laura Jane Grace (Against Me!, The Devouring Mothers), to the all-out-punk-assault of “Devo,” to the stripped back album centerpiece “Chasing Constellations,” Bloods show their creativity and versatility throughout the album.
Arguably the band’s most accomplished release, Together, Baby! is equal parts refined and shambolic, creatively adventurous without losing any of the edge and energy that has made Bloods a favorite of the lo-fi punk scene the world over.
Since bursting onto the scene in 2013 with their critically acclaimed Golden Fang EP, Bloods have maintained their place as one of the Australia’s most enduring and beloved punk bands. Whether it’s through their highly infectious, undeniably fun punk-pop-meets-riot-grrrl tunes or their live shows, Bloods has consistently been celebrated by critics and fans alike.
