Dublin Natives Tony Konstone & Lilo Blues Cap Off a Successful Decade With a Lustful New Single From Their 2/28 Superweird EP
Flashing a unique vocal chemistry and an insatiable thirst for invention, Dublin natives Hare Squead are deeply dedicated to their craft. Delivering a lovestruck slice of electro-funk just in time for Valentine’s Day, Hare Squead shares “Baeboo,” their new single. At once nostalgic and futuristic, complete with gated snares and space-age synths, “Baeboo” finds Hare Squead vocalists Tony Konstone and Lilo Blues overcome by lust, ignoring the flaws of their significant others and plunging deeper into a dangerous attraction. Showing off the rhyming and singing talents of both emcees, “Baeboo” is the second standout single for Hare Squead in 2020, following the recent boom-bap clapback “Minor Gangsters (Gully).”
“Baeboo” arrives with an eye-catching lyric video, created by and starring Russian Instagram celebrity Anastasia Gorbatova. “I was so excited to hear this track before it came out,” says Gorbatova, “and I felt somehow it was about me, even though it’s not. I instantly learned it by heart and it’s like I’m in another world when I listen.”
Premiered in late January and listed on Spotify playlists like POLLEN and New Music Friday, “Minor Gangsters” claps back at racist UK politician Rory Stewart, who called Tony and Lilo “minor gangsters” during a man-on-the-street interview. The song flips the phrase and gives it a new power, as the duo proves there’s nothing “minor” about the way they handle their business. Along with “Baeboo,” “Minor Gangsters (Gully)” is a cornerstone of the duo’s upcoming Superweird EP
Hare Squead is currently preparing to embark the “Minor Gangsters Tour” in late February. A 5-show run that takes the duo across Western Europe, the “Minor Gangsters Tour” features stops in Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, London, and the duo’s hometown of Dublin, Ireland. Stay tuned for Superweird EP, arriving on February 28th.
