NYC bands on the rise: Haybaby plays Grand Victory tomorrow (12.06)

NYC bands on the rise: Haybaby plays Grand Victory tomorrow (12.06)

Brooklyn’s raggedy indie-rockers Haybaby are great for rocking out to, but their songs are also very catchy and tense at once, in a way that's at times vaguely reminiscent of The Breeders or, depending on the song, Pavement. The lively trio offers a refreshing alternative yet punk/thrash sound, something that molds the techniques we’ve all heard before into something new and exciting. Leslie Hong’s adorable female vocals pair nicely with Zach & Sam’s counterparts. They just released a noteweorthy 4-track EP titled SUPERPRESENT in October, which you can listen to below via Bandcamp, and they’re set to play The Grand Victory on Friday 12.06 as part of a stacked lineup including Low Fat Getting High, Hunktronik & Jangula. – Michael Haskoor (@Tweetskoor)
