The Icypoles' Isobel Knowles didn't write a lyric like "Be My Baby" absent-mindedly. Her band grew at a time where a love of '60s girl groups was fresh in her heart, but borrowing the era's most famous words for 'Babies' doesn't make her band a revivalist act, far from it.

There's no wall of sound and no madcap producer perched behind the desk for this four-piece, they let their music breathe. The Icypoles can be traced back to an experimental film soundtrack Knowles once committed to tape, and you can still hear it in their sound, they create atmosphere with sparse handclaps and vulnerable lead vocals, and leave space for visuals even when the projector is off.
