Glasgow five-piece Baby Chaos return with a buzz, a bang and a battalion of hooks on their new album. With Ape Confronts Cosmos, the band has produced a bi-polar behemoth which throws monstrous riffs at walls of harmony, drawing the occasional tender acoustic breath before slapping the listener in the face with further savage guitars and soaring melodies.
In the five years that have passed since the release of their last album, Skulls, Skulls, Skulls, Show Me The Glory, the world has uncovered yet more ways of being more volatile than ever. Ape Confronts Cosmos is the Baby Chaos dossier on what it is to live an examined life in the 21st century.
A new three-pronged guitar assault opened up panoramic possibilities for Baby Chaos and their new songs, and the band were pushed to the limit of their skills and beyond. As a happy consequence, Ape Confronts Cosmos holds its own alongside many of its illustrious contemporaries; the likes of Biffy Clyro, Royal Blood, Muse, Queens of The Stone Age and Foo Fighters, some of whom would also willingly quote Baby Chaos as an influence in their own formative years.
