100 GECS – ” Hollywood Baby “

Posted: February 19, 2023 in MUSIC

US hyperpop outfit 100 Gecs have shared their latest single, ‘Hollywood Baby’. The single is taken from 100 Gecs’ forthcoming second album, “10,000 gecs”, which arrives on Friday, 17th March.

‘Hollywood Baby’ is a typically unhinged number from the enigmatic duo of Laura Les and Dylan Brady, featuring heavy synths and autotuned vocals. Live performance videos of ‘Hollywood Baby’ have been circulating among the band’s fanbase since 2021.

‘Hollywood Baby’ comes with a self-directed video that concretises the incendiary nature of the song – i.e. it centres on Les and Brady setting off fireworks in their apartment. The new single follows the duo’s 2021 single ‘mememe’, 2022’s ‘Doritos & Fritos’, and the surprise EP, “Snake Eyes”, from December 2022.

The forthcoming “10,000 gecs” is the follow-up to 100 gecs’ 2019 debut, 1000 gecs. The record was written, produced, and performed by Les and Brady, with additional drumming from Josh Freese (Devo, The Vandals, A Perfect Circle).

100 Gecs have been playing this song in their boisterous, ridiculously fun live sets for a minute now, and its recorded version doesn’t disappoint, combusting in a cascade of crunchy pop-punk sparks.
