Total Babe from Minnesota


Total Babe is a quartet of teenagers out of Minnesota. What I like about Total Babe is their simplicity. The keys drive the melody. The strummed guitar fills out the sound, but isn’t overwhelming, and Clara Salyer’s vocals are striking and stay with you.

I wouldn’t say Total Babe is unique; quite the contrary.  Their sound comes in somewhere between chamber pop music and indie rock, as you might expect from a group of very talented teens that grew up during a   decade (the 00′) defined by Rilo Kiley and The Postal service.

Listening to Bearbones, Shape Up, and Gary Coleman (songs from their LP Heatwave) I just imagine myself at their live show, standing against the wall, dancing with my hands in my pockets and I love it.
