L-space: Backup Baby / Old Machines

A few months after their excellent previous offering, Suneaters, Scotland's L-space return with another single off their upcoming album which is due out this Fall. Backup Baby is one of the more accessible tracks the four-piece have recorded so far, still carrying the band's signature ethereal dreampop sound. The single comes paired with a music video whose techy visuals emerge as a suitable match to the song's murky sci-fi theme.

According to L-space, Backup Baby is "inspired by the idea of using babies as organ farms to ensure that even when we die we will not cease to exist."

One of the single's charming b-sides, Old Machines, is a poetic take on an imaginary future where machines build a better world for us than the one we did, echoing the philosophical science fiction of Philip K. Dick or the dystopian modernity of J.G. Ballard.

Backup Baby is out now on Last Night From Glasgow. The band's forthcoming full length is expected in September 2018.
