It all started the day Anthony Babino walked into his younger brother’s room and simply said: “Here is a bass and here is a setlist—we have a gig Friday.” Up until then, the brothers had been lifelong musicians, playing and singing harmony with their father—a professional jazz musician—but had yet to find their music. Today, Anthony and Steven are New York-based touring and recording artist, Rebel Kicks, a rock-leaning, indie-pop band with an electronic twist. Since forming in 2018, Rebel Kicks has released a full length album, A Portrait of Man: Part 1; a live EP; a string of singles, several of which have been featured on MTV and Showtime; and they are about to release a brand new EP with all new music. Live, the band augments its lineup with longtime bandmates, Daniel Bradley (drums) and Dorian Lake (keys/vocals). Rebel Kicks has shared bills with artists such as Foo Fighters, Blink-182, Mac Miller, Iggy Azalea, Incubus, and more.
The brothers have issued several new singles in 2023, including the irresistibly energetic single, “Silhouette,” (released in February); the rock n roll / electronica song “Electrophoria” which they performed live on Good Day NY (with Rosanna Scotto); their version of Beatles classic “Please Please Me” which has gained International acclaim; and several more on it’s way including “The Girl From Barcelona”.
The brothers are musically self-contained. Anthony and Steven are gifted multi-instrumentalists who often write, record, produce, and play all the instruments on their songs. Rebel Kicks craft anthemic alternative pop refreshingly infused with social commentary and powerful personal revelation.
Ollie Gullick, a 19-year-old artist from the UK, recently relocated from Abu Dhabi to Boston to pursue music at Berklee. His band, The Lads, has begun establishing a presence in the Boston music scene, including winning the Berklee Miracle Club's 2023 Battle of the Bands. Their music incorporates elements of rock, folk, indie, and pop, centering on experiences of growing up away from home and as a member of the LGBT community. Anticipate an evening brimming with tales of identity, movement, change, and all that accompanies it.
