Berklee Summer in the CityThe Dingo Babies

The Dingo Babies' sound is focused on tight harmonies and catchy, sideways power-pop tunes about inner and outer space. Their style rides the waves of the Avett Brothers, Weezer, Alt-J, and Crash Kings. They began performing in small local venues and at homeless shelters and food kitchens through Berklee's student-run service program, the Movement. The band has continued to stay active in service, raising over $1,000 with their music to benefit the human rights organization Calling All Crows by performing on the street, strongly believing in music as a vehicle for happiness and positive social change. The Dingo Babies have released one full-length album entitled Breakfast ("The raw emotion of it is obvious... eclectic, interesting, and accessible," says WMFO) and have opened for acts such as Chadwick Stokes (Dispatch, State Radio). The Dingo Babies are currently working on an album due out very soon, and they hope Shia LaBeouf will hear it.
