“Picking up where Foster The People and alt-J tumbled off is the Charleston, South Carolina crew Brave Baby. This is indie rock stacked with hooks and smoky vocals, reaching a powerful peak during the immediately joyous track “Plastic Skateboard,” picked off their sophomore LP Electric Friends. Brave Baby must wear out their reverb pedals due to a consistent use of spacey instrumentation that elevates each song, but this is no far-out jam band. A majority of the tracks off Electric Friends get it done under four minutes, suggesting that Brave Baby can maneuver psychedelic tones without sacrificing a pop edge.” —Village Voice
“Brave Baby’s brand of woozy, psychedelic indie-pop is part of a lysergic lineage that includes groups as disparate as The Strawberry Alarm Clock, The Flaming Lips, M83 and Foster The People.” —Pandora
