Somewhere between the art punk of Blonde Redhead and Sonic Youth, the classic indie rock of The Pixies and The Breeders and the attitude of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Haybaby impatiently reside. The band also sprinkles a little bit of sludge and noise pop into the mix and balances their raw energy with deceptive and captivating melodies. There are brilliant structures at play here as Haybaby deftly allows these songs to create their own personalities. The band can be in your face with lyrical realness one moment while the next finds them casually sneaking a beautiful line right past you. But, regardless the approach, direct or indirect, Haybaby are thoughtful and creative with every musical step they take. These songs simply draw you in. They tell you stories. They kick your ass. They make you feel something. Sleepy Kids is the sound of a band probing to find that sweet spot and we're just happy to listen to the process.
