Dunkirk Fans, take a look at Sweet Baboo’s latest music video for the new single ‘Swallows’.
Evoking the French pop feel of the song, the video features Stephen braving all the elements as well as donning an array of historical army uniforms whilst his partner and child (also played by Stephen) wait longingly for his return. Light-hearted and playful, Stephen defines it as “the final instalment in director James Hankins’ trilogy and my favourite video so far”
This single also features on Sweet Baboo’s latest album ‘Wild Imagination’, available now on Moshi Moshi.These are just some of the praises the album has received so far;
“A beautifully judged psych-pop records that hums with warmth, quiet eccentricity and gentle tryness recalling Robert Wyatt, ’60s French pop and Gruff Rhys’ solo fare”. – 8/10, Uncut
“A sweet, wry and winningly eccentric pick-you-up from a gently inquisitive psych-pop explorer who always takes the scenic route.” – The Independent
“‘Wild Imagination’ is a paean to positivity, the songs united by a single thread of finding joy in little things. The standouts here are among the prettiest work that he’s yet turned out.” – DIY
