Par for the 2020 course, Babe Club’s “Need a Girl” remix was supposed to be released Labor Day last year but the pandemic pushed it back. Although, with the playful vocal loops and house bass drops, the new remix is perfect for a summer day in the sun. 

The new mix is from Chicago-based producer duo, whimsy. “I like the way they painted the song,” said Babe Club frontwoman Jenna Desmond. “The song is positive and melancholy in a way, but the spirit of it is me wanting to dance with a bunch of girls to it; and that’s what the remix does for me.”

Now that she’s on the other side of the shutdown pressing pause on everything, Desmond realizes the world is so much bigger than we think it is. “I feel like the pandemic pushed us to reach outside of people that we know,” she said. “It allowed us to meet people online and connect in that way.

“It also made me realize how cool our community is. We played a show at LO-fi [Brewing] a few weeks ago, and it had been a while since I felt community. Every time I play I get so much, and I always grow — that people still show up after a year of not playing, that’s so special.”
