“Because of the stupid persona, I can approach dark subjects like death or global annihilation or depression in comedic form or without coming off as didactic. It's the idea and ethos of hyperpop, but sonically a bit more in the classic glam rock or indie rock department (or whatever genre I happen to be dabbling in at the time),” Lowry explains.
On this full-length, Baby FuzZ transforms a list of deadly diseases twice, first into a folk punk stomp, and then into its own dance routine and punk rock surprise ending on “We’re All Gonna Die!!!”. Lowry’s persona namedrops an iPhone-wielding Patti Smith on glammy highlight “Before Our Time,” shoves Brian May guitar heroics through “I’m Trying My Freakin Best,” a song transported from the inside of a sad can of Bush’s Baked Beans, and has time to shroud McDonalds and Elon Musk in romantic fog on closer “Acid Night.” All of these shoehornings should be taken with a large grain of salt, especially when considering Baby FuzZ’s Mother Earth-first mentality. “The present is all that matters, but it's always second fiddle,” Lowry continues. “I guess what I was trying to do with this album was shake people and say ‘wake up!’ or maybe better yet, shake myself out of some helpless malaise and try to make a difference in the world around me.” Baby FuzZ is welcoming you to the future...before it’s too late.
