Baby Baby Tease Their Semifamous Album with release of JEEZ and Krew Love PT II - OFFICIAL VIDEO (S)

Atlanta's Baby Baby released a two song homage to the 70's Show in celebration of their upcoming album Semifamous due out September 16th. The videos are more like one video each sharing different songs namely Jeez and Krew Love PT II. It is like watching a movie with alternate endings or, well.... alternate songs. Both songs have their signature blast of exuberant indie pop punk. If you haven't heard Baby Baby they have the raw kinetic energy of Japandroids meets Diarrhea Planet meets Andrew WK meets Block Party.

Frontman Fontez Brooks explains why the band chose to use the same imagery for two different songs:

“Partying is an art. And like art, its complexities encompass all aspects of life. Every soirĂ©e needs a soundtrack and that’s what we’ve provided. ‘Krew Love’ and ‘Jeez’ are the yin and yang to the party. ‘Krew Love’ is that perfect moment when life is good. When you’re partying with the people you love and you’re like 92% sure you’re going to get laid tonight, while ‘Jeez’ is 3 hours after that when you’re throwing chairs screaming ‘IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT?! HUH?! YOU WANTED CRAZY GUY?! WELL HERE HE IS!!!!’ In other words ‘Krew Love’ is Happy Drunk and ‘Jeez’ is sad drunk. When sad drunk takes control there’s that moment where you should just give up and go home, but what if you don’t? You’re agitated, sad, and so wasted; your emotions come pouring out of you in the most extreme way. Imagine having an outer body experience as you ruin your life and yet you can’t stop yourself. So when it came time to brainstorm video ideas for ‘Jeez’ we realized we already shot the video. Parties are awesome because getting drunk acts as a veil, hiding your deepest insecurities. Until the veil hardens creating a self-inflicted tomb. Then you’re just the drunk guy at the party laughing and crying at the same time. Decorating your deathbed.”
