Seasons Change. So does Love.
New York City's Hell Yeah Babies have released their next single, and it's called Grenade Season!
Recorded at Studio G Brooklyn, the Babies melded minds with sound engineer and Psychic TV/P-TV3 member Jeff Berner to refine their explosive live sound into a smooth dance-pop confection that showcases their sleek new wave chops and self-reflective lyrics, combined with a boy band's sensibility for tight hooks and soaring harmonies.
Grenade Season was a long-neglected demo that the band decided to revisit after the addition of former Ghost Hotel guitarist Sam Paxton to the lineup. With a pair of fresh ears, the boys wasted no time transforming what had once been a weighty ballad into a lean, mean, dancing machine. Julian added the secret sauce, a lilting synth lead cribbed straight from the 80's, on the last day in the studio, and the fix was in.
Fusing the cool swagger of Joy Division, the raw goth emotion of The Cure, and the meticulous pomp of Queen, Grenade Season is a sparkling dance track equally at home in a crowded discotheque or the privacy of your darkened bedroom.
Grenade Season Will be available on Bandcamp, Spotify, iTunes, tidal, and others on 10/07
But Don't Take Our Word For it:
You should see them live,
they're much better live.
The Hell Yeah Babies are a rock band from Astoria, New York with an exclusive membership of Michael Pfeiffer, Julian Ames, Dylan Roth & Sam Paxton. They play guitar, drums, bass and other guitar in that order and they all sing except Julian *.
Mike, Dylan, and Julian have been playing music together for the better part of a decade and moved from New Jersey to New York so they could stop having to own cars and start being in a band together again. Sam, a college friend of Mike's and a songsmith in his own right, was the secret ingredient added after he too packed up his life in suburban Maryland and struck out to join the boys in making the kind of band that would make people stop looking at their phones. Now they're The Hell Yeah Babies.
