Today, rising rock artist Billy Tibbals shared his newest single “Hollywood Baby” via Silver Arrow Records. Produced by Chris Robinson (The Black Crowes), the single harkens back to rock ‘n’ roll before it became simply ‘rock’; complete with driving pianos, swaggering guitar licks, and studio strings straight from Abbey Road, the song brings 70s glam into the 2020s. Though he maintains an attitude and sonic palette with classic raucous acts like T-RexDavid Bowie, or even The Damned, Tibbals’ vigor and charm steer him into his own lane. Perhaps he shares more in common with Destroyer’s Dan Bejar, mining old tropes for a new era with a wink and a nudge. 
 
The release follows Tibbals’ debut single “Onwards and Upwards,” written and recorded at home in his parents’ garage at the height of lockdown times. Complementing the reflective sensibilities of the A-Side, “Lucy” tells a story of marital disputes between an estranged elderly couple. Tibbals will also be embarking on a massive North American tour in support of Mac Saturn later this month. Tour dates and tickets are available here.

Listen : “Hollywood Baby

Moving from London to Hollywood back in 2014, Billy Tibbals quickly found a love for the place with its many eccentricities and cast of Tinseltown oddballs. Combining the influence of his new found home with an eclectic taste in music, much of which was formed during his upbringing in London, Billy presents a unique and fantastical view of the world around us. Graduating from high school in the midst of a global pandemic, he holed up in his parents garage, spending countless hours composing songs that reflect his experiences growing up.
