Single: Baby Combat – Hana Was a Wrestler

Baby Combat is an indie pop rock project by Noel Yeo, a singer-songwriter based in New York City. Born in Singapore, his previous bands include Shelves, Suchness, and Silverspy. As an experiment, Baby Combat will write and release a new single every month for a year, starting with Difficult But True.

This song is written for Hana Kimura, the late wrestler who starred in the hit Japanese reality TV series, Terrace House. She took her life on May 23, 2020, due to cyberbullying. I wrote the song the morning I woke to the news of her passing. She was what you might call an effervescent person, so this one hit hard. She was 22.

A beautiful heartwrenching indie rock. So fitting for this Friday evening.
