Skidmore Unofficial posted a link to a track by a Skidmore band called Babes (Zoë Brecher ‘12 of The Artifacts and Jon Benbeniste ‘14). The middle-age women in swimwear on their Bandcamp page may appear a tad strange, but Babes perfectly capture the reverb soaked indie-pop/surf-rock bliss that the kids these days worship. Jon’s voice definitely carries the same timbre as Christopher Owens of Girls. And once the chorus kicks in, I get a ginormous Best Coast meets Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros vibe.
Really hoping these guys release more tracks soon.
