BABYFACE is a 3 piece band from Kent/London, featuring Luke Wyatt (Vox/bass), Simone Hatt (Guitar) and Ben Affleck (Drums)
Starting as a online project between Luke and Simone after finding eachother through a mutual interest in Hip Hop/Punk music, they began sending ideas and samples to one another for over a year and a half before actually meeting, resulting in 'DISCOUNT DREAMS', their debut EP. Ben, a friend of Simone's from school, came on board after hearing the EP and decided he wanted to learn drums to be apart of the band.
All artwork and music videos were made between Simone, Luke and Ben with pretty much 0 budget and with help from Luke's friend Joe Cook (studio32) who mixed and mastered DISCOUNT DREAMS, BABYFACE were able to make their first project completely independent.
Our EP DISCOUNT DREAMS takes something from all of our favourite artists growing up, we wanted our first project to have all the tracks touch on slightly different sounds that we would like to explore further in the future. Although some of the songs we no longer like (as this project was started whilst we were alot younger,) we think with a slightly more mature outlook and music taste, our sound will only get more coherent as we find who we are as musicians.
Influences include Beastie Boys, The Streets, Jamie T, Ratboy, Slowthai, Slaves, Bakar, The Velvet Underground, IDK, Brockhampton and many more.
As a band we want to keep ourselves as DIY as possible for the long run as we enjoy creating everything from the ground up. We made our first 2 music videos with basically 0 budget. We're hoping people will at least see some potential in us as we have a lot of ideas.
By the end of 2019 we would like to have put out 2 more projects, which we're hoping will be a lot more US hip hop influenced and also work on our live shows so we can start playing and getting out there. I'm running out of things to put for the 350 word minimum annnnnnnd fantastic we hit it!!!!
