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; and a string of singles, several of which have been featured on MTV and Showtime.
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 will be issuing a fleet of new singles in 2023, starting with the irresistibly energetic single, “Silhouette,” out February 10th. 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.

Rebel Kicks latest single, “Silhouette”, bursts with explosive pop-rock hooks, dreamy crooning, moody atmospheric ambience, adventurous basslines, ear-worm guitar riffs, and it even features a synth solo. The song contrasts upbeat musicality with playfully downtrodden lyrics for a goosebump-inducing experience that recalls the emotive, pop-rock musicality of Kings Of Leon and The Killers. “Silhouette” was written and recorded with Jackson Hoffman (Young Rising Sons, Micky James) and Ryder Stuart (CANNON).

Don’t miss them performing their new single “Electrophoria” on Good Day NY airing at the end of this month (May 2023). Updates to follow.

Music Review // Rebel Kicks “Electrophoria”

There are two key components which make the sound of Rebel Kicks so infectious. On one hand, I can hear this dance type of pop rock sound which makes me think of bands like Panic At The Disco and Fall Out Boy. It’s just got that energy to it, where I imagine fans singing along and moving around like they would during one of those bands shows.
