The YEAH Babies (Columbus, Ohio)
The YEAH Babies are a quartet from Columbus, Ohio, that uses bass, drums, keys and vocals to create a truly unique brand of Electronic Soul Pop. On its seven-track self-titled release from earlier this year, the band showcases a compelling mix of trippy, quirky electronics and eccentric rhythms that are topped off with soulful vocals and melodies and arranged sparsely. The empty space in The YEAH Babies sound is like a part of the ambient texture, giving an artsy, creative bent to the group’s blended style. The band shows the influence of EDM, Hip Hop, Indie Rock, R&B and Pop, but never gives in to one particular genre.
