Recognised as one of the most electrifying new acts to emerge from the UK in the
past year, Baba Ali is the combined force of American performer and musician Baba
Doherty and British guitarist Nik Balchin. Following the release of their debut
Memory Device in 2021 and 18 months of touring, Baba Ali return with one foot firmly
placed on the dance floor, and the other in a state of frenzy. The bold and fiery lead
single Burn Me Out from the upcoming sophomore album Laugh Like A Bomb,
serves as a blueprint for what the duo call their ‘electro punk disco’ sound and was
premiered by Lauren Laverne on BBC 6 Music. Having previously collaborated with
Al Doyle (LCD Soundsystem / Hot Chip) on their debut album, this time the duo
absconded to Doyle’s studio in his own touring absence and took to production
duties themselves. Laugh Like A Bomb was recorded in just three weeks before
being mixed by Sheffield producer Ross Orton (Working Men’s Club / M.I.A. / Yard Act).
