The Babies were born out of a friendship between Cassie Ramone of The Vivian Girls and Kevin Morby of Woods. During a break in the schedules of the two much-loved Brooklyn noise pop bands in the winter of 2008, Ramone and Morby shared an apartment and decided to start a band. The idea was to recapture the early, stress-free days of playing music before they were both in groups that had gained some success and created accompanying pressures. Despite writing a few songs, nothing much came of the idea until the next winter when both bands again had a break. With the addition of Ramone’s former bandmate in Bossy, Justin Sullivan, on drums, the trio began writing songs in earnest that met somewhere between the sugary fuzz of The Vivian Girls and the ramshackle indie rock of Woods. After bassist Nathaneal Stark joined the band, the quartet — now named The Babies — began playing shows in the summer of 2010. Recording when they could find a chance, The Babies released singles for the small Wild World and Make a Mess labels before releasing their self-titled debut album for Shrimper in February of 2011. The band toured for much of the year, eventually replacing Stark with new bassist, Brian Schleyer. In early 2012, they left their Brooklyn home to record their second album in sunnier Los Angeles. The result was Our House on the Hill, released on Woodsist late in the year.

The Babies

04/06/2013 By Stacy Griffiths

The BabiesAfter discovering The Babies via Bloom.fm ‘That Boy‘ has been on replay ever since. Combining soft acoustics, gentle guitars and whimsical male vs female vocals as well as upbeat choruses and energetic angst they are every bit the beach vibes band. Brooklyn based, The Babies formed in 2009 and have already made waves through the surf rock scene. Having played a host of European tours as well as all across their native America, big big things are to be expected.

The New York foursome made up of Cassie Ramone, Kevin Morby, Justin Sullivan and Brian Schleyer are a real diamond among the rough in their scene. Producing catchy songs fit for any indie rom-com they will make the perfect addition to your summer soundtrack.  If you’re a fan of indie pop with a twist you’ll revel in The Babies. As well as sounding good they also look great and its easily noted via their tumblr account that this is a band that work very very hard.

Playing at the Green Door Store this June, Be Nothing host another incredible show; a real must see live band with support from my personal favourites the excitingly energetic Furrow and catchy Cali pop drenched Fawn Spots.

Songs to check out; That Boy, Alligator and Moonlight Mile  or just listen to their latest album, Our House On The Hill as it’s barely got a duff track.
