At just 17, Baro has the world paying attention to his unique hip hop sound, with comparisons to the likes of Earl Sweatshirt, Joey Bada$$ and King Krule. Following the success of his debut mixtape HOWGOODISGOOD?, which dropped about 12 months back, he’s set to release his debut EP. Dubbed 17/18, the release (and its title) marks him turning 18, and will come out on July 10th via teamtrick.
To co-incide with the announcement, Baro has released a new video for “Sea Less”, which you can watch at the end of the article, and you can check him out on the road as he presents the 17/18 national tour. It begins in July at Splendour in the Grass and then moves onto dates in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and Adelaide.
Baro’s debut EP is available for pre-order via Pledgemusic at:www.pledgemusic.com/artists/baro with unique pre-order packs that include limited edition tie dye tees, long sleeve tees, legionnaires caps and one-off experiences.
