Baby Baby: Can’t Spell Conch Without the “CH”
Channeling the Beastie Boy’s silly irreverence and party-rockin’ spirit, Atlanta Georgia’s BABY BABY blend pop/punk songwriting with a hip-hop swagger and an emphasis on the live experience, which is something akin to the party scene in a teen movie, only everyone there can drink, and the party’s actually fun.
Baby Baby convened in the summer of 2009, when singer/guitarist Fontez Brooks and drummer Grant Wallace shook off the sleepiness of the suburbs and set out to bring a new element to the Atlanta scene. Packed with unfriendly, broody artists, hostile hardcore kids and the strip-club rap scene on the creepy fringes, The A simply needed some fun rock. And that’s what Baby Baby — which has since expanded to include percussionist Colin Boddy, bassist Kyle Dobbs and Ryan Burruss on keys — delivers on their sophomore album, Big Boy Baller Club, the follow-up to 2011’s Money, released on the Gospel of Rhythm Recordings.
Baby Baby are described as a big, inclusive tent. There’s room under it for friends, foes, Nickleback fans, even haters; we all need someone to keep us in check, don’t we? All they ask is that you come ready to dance and make some new friends on the floor. They’ll take care of the rest.
