West Coast Beats: Oakland’s Surf Rock Band Babewatch


Comprised of guitarists/singers Peter Kegler and Callum Beals, bassist Chase Eiseman, and drummer Eli Lyons, Babewatch has been described as “energetic, almost spooky psych rock” by The Bay Bridged. From folkloric odes likes “Brian,” to the reflective ennui of “No Sleep” and “Wasted Time,” the subject matter of their newest album has become more refined with their evolution.

Over the past years, Babewatch has played extensively in California and toured throughout the West Coast. They’ve supported acts such as King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, La Luz, Diarrhea Planet, and many others. While they still retain the surf tinged sound of their early days in Santa Cruz, their newer sound has become more influenced by the garage and post-punk sounds of the Ea​st Bay Area. W​asted Time, an eleven song LP, is the culmination of this.

You can preview and purchase their latest, Wasted Time over at BANDCAMP.
