The Guru Guru have released a video for their new single Make Less Babies, taken from their upcoming album Make (Less) Babies.

“Imagine you’re suddenly a guru. You’re being asked to speak in front of millions of people, televised worldwide, at a conference for saving the planet. You have 20 minutes to make the PowerPoint presentation. Make it worth our while. Don’t forget about the fact that you’re super crabbed about just becoming a guru and everything,” vocalist Tom “the Bomb” Adriaenssens comments on the single and video. 

“I thought of the first version of ‘Make Less Babies’ when I took my dogs to the park and it was full of trash. Litter p*sses me off. Add to that my dogs eat up anything remotely food-like. All I thought of was the tempo and the lyrics. When I’m frustrated, I become sarcastic. This song could be a modern take on the 10 Commandments. A modern Guru doesn’t command anything though—they share suggestions, tips. Suggestions and tips that could help people save the earth and humanity a little, but totally in the wrong order, not covering everything.

“Lots of the words are just saying “don’t be a d*ck” but more friendly. Since our band is called The Guru Guru, I felt we needed more guru-like messages providing insights that are—though incomplete and sometimes debatable—helpful to the world. Even though there are many economical objections to be made to the ‘make less babies’ argument, don’t we need a planet to build and sustain that economy on, in whichever shape?”

Make (Less) Babies is due for release on 27th October 2023 via Humus Records/A Tant Rêver Du Roi Records, available to pre-order HERE and pre-save HERE.
