It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Kaley Honeycutt. This pop force first came into my knowledge back in 2015, when she was hustling in the the criminally short-lived synth pop trio Island Science. But, as they say, all things happen for a reason, and for Kaley that reason was BABY. This solo project fused Frankie Cosmo-like jangly rock tunes with a perfect aesthetic, brought to life by Kaley’s own design. Now, this pop package has been polished further with the help of Maryland-based record label Yellow K, and she’s ready to take on the indiesphere.
BABY’s debut EP Pick Me is out today (premiered here). It gives you a taste of her infectious, fun attitude, but due to its short runtime, leaves you wanting more sweet ear candy. You want more of the party. You want to watch the music video. You want to see her live. It hypes you up for her future work. She hazily coos like a stoned Zoey Deschanel on the EP’s first song “Home, Sweet Home.” It’s a moment that sums up everything BABY is about, friends, a good time, and a forever summer. She may have moved to Massachusetts, but Kaley still hasn’t lost her Orlando glow. 🙂
