Brave Baby @Hang Fire

BRAVE Baby’s back! Our Charleston neighbors have been heading to Savannah pretty regularly over the years, and their live show just keeps getting better and better.

They’re headed through town this go-round armed with a brand-new record, Electric Friends. “Plastic Skateboard,” the first tease of the record, is fresh-faced indie-pop that’s just electro enough to make you dance and just grounded enough to make you sing along. It’s dreamy, up-tempo, and summery at just the right time.

There’s something wistfully nostalgic about their sound that evokes the heat off the sidewalk and that little bit of cool in the breeze after a summer of oppressive heat—you’re just not quite ready to let it slip away just yet. It’s also a great demonstration of the band’s ability to push and pull: unadorned, buoyant bass and a toe-tapping snare carry the verses until meeting the threshold of a full-brimmed chorus, spilling over into a searing guitar lead. Reduce to a simmer. Return to a rapid boil.

Electric Friends will be available August 14 on Charleston-based boutique label Hearts & Plugs Records—stream it, then snag a physical copy at the show. Wednesday, August 19, 9 p.m.
