Isaac Holman’s Baby Dave teams up with Kate Nash for new track ‘Telephobia’

He’ll release his second album under the Baby Dave moniker next month.

Fresh from a headline appearance at 2000trees earlier this month with SOFT PLAY, Isaac Holman’s Baby Dave has returned today with news of a new album, and a collaboration with Kate Nash.

His reflective new track ‘Telephobia’ gets taken from his forthcoming second album ‘Different Gravy’, which follows his 2022 debut ‘Monkey Brain’ and is due for release independently on 11th August.

“’Telephobia’ is all about finding it hard to keep in contact with your mates, particularly when there’s shit going on in your life, whether it be mental health struggles or real life drama,” Isaac has said, of his new musical offering. “I knew I wanted Kate on the tune but I wasn’t sure how to go about it, it felt like a long shot. I gave her a cheeky follow to try and make contact and then lo and behold she messaged me saying she was into my stuff and that she also has OCD. It felt like we had a nice connection and after chatting for a while I said if you ever wanna make any music together, I’m down. Thankfully she was up for it and a couple weeks later she came and hung out and did her thing. I’ve got a lot of respect for her as an artist and a person and I’m just so happy it all came together.”

Speaking about joining Isaac on the track, Kate has said: “I’m a big fan of Isaac’s music and we became quick mates over the past year talking about our OCD brains and the quirks of living life as a musician. He asked if I wanted to sing on a new haunting and catchy tune and I jumped at the chance. I love Isaac’s music because it feels familiar, it paints a scene that you instantly recognise, it’s got a cinematic quality to it and it’s uniquely British. His lyrics always make me laugh and nod in agreement and even this sad tune helps make you feel just that little bit more understood & less lonely when you hear it.”

There’s also an accompanying video, as directed by Lee Jones, which you can check out below.
