Baby Dave - 'Telephobia' ft. Kate Nash

Isaac Holman has made his very welcomed return under his Baby Dave moniker to share news of not only a single, but in surprise fashion, on August 11th a second album entitled 'Different Gravy'. Teaming up with Kate Nash, the latest track is as sultry as you'd expect with Sax, deadpan vocals and a downtempo Jazz inspired melody. Holman shares;"’Telephobia’ is all about finding it hard to keep in contact with your mates, particularly when there’s shit going on in your life, whether it be mental health struggles or real life drama. I knew I wanted Kate on the tune but I wasn’t sure how to go about it, it felt like a long shot. I gave her a cheeky follow to try and make contact and then lo and behold she messaged me saying she was into my stuff and that she also has OCD. It felt like we had a nice connection and after chatting for a while I said if you ever wanna make any music together, I’m down. Thankfully she was up for it and a couple weeks later she came and hung out and did her thing. I’ve got a lot of respect for her as an artist and a person and I’m just so happy it all came together.”  Kate Nash adds; “I’m a big fan of Isaac’s music and we became quick mates over the past year talking about our OCD brains and the quirks of living life as a musician. He asked if I wanted to sing on a new haunting and catchy tune and I jumped at the chance. I love Isaac’s music because it feels familiar, it paints a scene that you instantly recognise, it’s got a cinematic quality to it and it’s uniquely British. His lyrics always make me laugh and nod in agreement and even this sad tune helps make you feel just that little bit more understood and less lonely when you hear it.” Take a listen for yourselves below with the beautifully shot video that exquisitely brings to life the detached sentiment running throughout the song.
