Broken Down Golf Cart, purveryors of spacey grunge and fuzzy weird love began as the audio/visual project of Canadian-born, Merseyside-based musician, animator and visual artist Jennifer Baranick.
What once was as a lo-fi bedroom project featuring a variety of different musicians gathered momentum after receiving support and radio play from numerous sources and glowing reviews from the likes of yours truely, Bido Lido, and God is in the TV Zine.
Since then Broken Down Golf Cart has left the studio and is now a fully-fledged live band composed of Baranick on guitar and vocals, Liam Crosbie on bass, Amanda Scheibert on drums and vocals and Tayler Little on lead guitar, embracing the 90s grunge rock narratives to danceable psych-pop. Jen says the songs are “replete with lush harmonies and lyrics that reflect on contemporary issues such as anxiety, sorrow and corrupt world leaders as well as the plight of the environment, all done with with charm, insight and a sense of playfulness”
Earlier in the year they supported Plastic Mermaids, US grunge rockers Skating Polly, and Enola Gay as well as played the Alexander’s Beyond the Walls Festival in Chester and Part Time Punks II in Leeds over the summer. Jen also recently animated Gas Künst single PCSO No No No (You’re Wrong)
Oh Snap is the latest release from Broken Down Golf Cart, they are set to release an EP called Songs for the End of the World featuring some unique musicians to the project as well as a full album featuring the current band line up. Both will be produced entirely by Baranick and to be released in 2024.
