Our next Feature puts the ssss-punk in October! Sweet Babylon is a ska / reggae / punk rock band so well received by our Open Mic crowd that we wanted to hear more of them.
The Group was formed in late 2011 by three friends from the Fall River, Mass area looking to bring back the ska and reggae sound from their generation (which was the 90’s) to the new generation of Justin Beiber fans. “I can only compare us as a Blink-182 / Sublime .. love child,” says Kyle Platt, lead singer of the Group.
Sweet Babylon has written tons of original music and also cover a lot of great music from many artists like Sublime to Kid Cudi.
Kyle Platt is the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of the group, with his smooth singing and wise cracking jokes he makes sure that every song turns into a party! Next on the roster is Izzy Star! He is the bassist and background vocalist in the group. With his shag-a-delic bass grooves and great harmonies he is capable of making any person shake their “toocus.” Last, but definitely not least, is Brandon Carreiro on drums. His beats are able to fill up any music lover’s stomach. (Yes, that was beat reference to food…) All together they form the perfect little girl known as “Sweet Babylon!”
