Kilwinning band The Girobabies have released a new music video ahead of launching their long-awaited second album.

The band released the song Dear Monday, their first new material since 2015’s Who Took Utopia?, with the music video uploaded online last week.

With the band currently in the studio finishing their forthcoming album, they will also be playing with the Mickey 9s at The Garage on May 11 and July 8 at Kelburn Garden Party.

The Girobabies, led by Mark McG, create baffling funk-soul grunge music with a dollop of psychedelic dystopia and a pinch of gutter-rock utopian stardust.

They released their debut album on vinyl ‘Who Took Utopia?’ to critical acclaim a few years ago.

This was a self-produced and self-released follow up to previous mini LPs ‘Bus Stop Apocalypse’ and ‘Social Not Working’.

The band used an indie/ grunge, almost punk, backbeat to deliver pertinent political/social observations akin to the likes of the Sleaford Mods, The Streets and The Fall.
