The BB Guns :: Baby, I Hate You

TheBBGuns-BabyIHateYouThe BB guns are a five-piece Torontonian band with three female vocalists taking the lead. These chicks kick ass! They remind me of a retro girl band from the ’60s or something; even the way they dress is retro!

Their musical style is very garage-pop, with catchy choruses and girl-group harmonies that are countered by that early punk-rock sound, guitars and shouted bridges. The mix of these styles makes The BB Guns the queens of short, fast and catchy, and their debut EP, Baby, I Hate You, is just that.

With four equally great songs, this album was recorded in Toronto, and was produced and mixed by Brian Borcherdt. The EP opens with ‘Baby, I Hate You’. A good start to this EP, the track is sung towards a scorned ex-lover, perhaps, as the ladies repeatedly yell “Move on!”. The track gets progressively louder ’till the song ends, setting you up for the next track. . .

‘Penny Lane’ – my personal favourite. This track’s lovelorn lyrics are catchy and relatable. The harmonies are pleasant with the sound of a tambourine complimenting it all.

TheBBGuns-1‘(She Thinks She’s) So Soho’ is a short song, but is delivered with a punch! This song is definitely badass, emitting a pissed-off vibe to whomever is the muse for this song. ‘Dear Abbey’ ends the EP off on a hight note. This song is upbeat and catchy, with great drumming that gets you on your feet.

I can’t get enough of this band! This EP is available on vinyl – and everything sounds better on vinyl. The BB Guns are on my summer’s top ten list and they should be on yours too!
