It’s not a secret that I’m smitten with Cloud Nothings and everything released under that name. Dylan Baldi’s backing band, however, has some great talent that cannot be ignored. Total Babes is Chris Brown, Gary Spolarich and Cloud Nothings’ Jayson Gerycz and Joe Boyer, and it’s yet another awesome lo-fi group to come out of Cleveland.
The easiest way to describe “Like They Always Do,” the first track from the Total Babes debut, Swimming Through Sunlight, has a very punk and chaotic feel to it. The song barely rests at all and the chorus of “Just like they always do” is immediately turned into a sing-a-long.
With summer getting ready to officially start, “Like They Always Do” is the perfect song for your summer car mixes and whatever mixes you’re making to enjoy the sun in.
