Babygirl – Nevermind

After meeting at music school in Toronto, Canada, Kiki Frances and Cameron Breithaupt started to write songs together. They make ‘90s-inspired soft pop-rock songs in the vein of Aimee Mann, whom I happen to like a lot. At first, they intended to write for other artists, but then they realised they wanted to be performers themselves. Hence the decision to form their own band, Babygirl.

The two EP’s they already released over the past years, will soon get a companion. Their third EP Losers Weepers is scheduled for release on 16 April. On this EP, more than ever before, the duo collaborated with other writers and producers on some of the songs. Their new single Nevermind for instance was co-written by Steph Jones and Phoebe Bridgers collaborator Marshall Vore.

On the Nylon blog, Frances explains: “I like the word ‘never mind’. It’s often said after you’ve said something you immediately want to take back or undermine, and we like pointing to that nervous tick in the context of a romantic relationship. Like, ‘I love you… wait, you don’t love me back? Never mind’. We like to write from a ‘you can’t fire me, I quit’ place. Everyone has different defensive instincts, and that’s definitely one of mine.”
