"Dear Babe" is the latest from Melbourne brothers, Travalley. An upbeat rocker along the lines of Hockey Dad and Dune Rats, "Dear Babe" is a vibrant splash of Aussie surf rock with a punchy hook.
The track itself deals with lead singer, Levi, and his social awkwardness and lack of skills with the ladies, something I and much of the male population can relate too. Here's what Levi had to say about the tune;
I always manage to say the wrong thing or give too much away too early which tends to end up in the “what if I said this” situation happening over and over again and then repeating the process with the same results,” Levi explains. “About a year ago, I finally stuck to my guns and held back from blurting out everything about myself to a girl, I was so impressed with myself that I decided to write a song about all my past experiences, and now here we are! We just hope people really enjoy the song and get a laugh out of the film clip.
Not only is this a ripper tune, but the music video accompanying "Dear Babe" is a must-watch. Inspired by DZ Deathrays', "The Mess Up" and Dune Rats', "Red Light GreenLight" videos, it shows them chowing down on as many chilies as possible during the duration of the song. Word of warning: it doesn't end well.
