We are Babel.
Babel like "Bay-bull". Not "bar-bell" or "babble".
Born in Bristol in the UK, Babel started out all kind of small, folky & a bit shy but then fell in dirty love with pounding tamborines and volume knobs.
Songs led to concerts, concerts led to the recording two self-financed EPs, 'The Golden Acre EP' & 'The Arc EP'. Both were sold from tables in tiny venues. Some of which reached places far beyond our own postcode.
In 2007, People Tree Records of London, UK released the majority of our two EPs to the world on one reasonably priced compact disc & weighty slab of vinyl. The CDs have long gone but there's still some vinyl around if you look hard enough. Or iTunes of course..
The new album is called 'CROOKED TIMBER'.
"(An) outstanding full-length debut by the Bristol six-piece. Babel write some terrific tunes with unexpected twists.. ( **** )"
