Rising Australian hip-hop star Baro’s dropped his new single ‘PRETTY’ last week, the first track of his forthcoming EP Just Problems You Need to Know, and it’s fair to say that this is a pretty important song for him. The guitar driven fuzzy harmonies mark a change in direction and being one of the first songs he’s worked on after picking up a guitar, completing the song was a real labour of love. He created six completely different versions of it before finally settling on this one and has described it as a song that’s disguised as a love song that’s actually exploring the insecurities that arise when yearning for somebody. Pretty deep subject matter that sounds pretty incredible, this release has us eagerly anticipating the new EP, which will be out on May 19. Catch Baro on his headline tour ‘F**ck The Judge’ from May 20 with special guests Good Morning and Nasty Mars, tickets on sale now.
