THIS SHOW IS STRICTLY 18+
Rising Australian hip-hop star Baro has just dropped his brand-new single ‘Pretty’, as well as announces the details of his forthcoming EP ‘Just Problems You Need To Know’,which will be released on May 19, 2017 via Create/Control & teamtrick.
‘Pretty’, which premiered online via i-D follows in the footsteps of the Melbourne rapper’s massive 2016 single ‘wdubi’ and signals the diversity that can be expected from the rest of the EP. The track sees Baro in experimentation mode, exploring his sound, and drawing worthy comparisons with the likes of Frank Ocean and Shabazz Palaces. Jazzy hooks and bouncy beats are traded for indie guitars and fuzzed out harmonies, as Baro explores melodies, textures and tones with an approach unlike anyone else on the Australian hip hop landscape.
Baro has accompanied Vallis Alps and Remi on their recent national tours, performed at Laneway 2017 and Splendour In The Grass 2016, and spent the last few years getting his stage reps in with international acts Mick Jenkins, Freddie Gibbs, Badabadnotgood, and Danny Brown.
