Brigitte Calls Me Baby (ATO)

WHAT IT IS: Chicago-based quintet Brigitte Calls Me Baby finds the future of rock in its past. Comprising lead singer Wes Leavins, drummer Jeremy Benshish, guitarists Trevor Lynch and Jack Fluegel and bassist/keyboardist Devin Wessels, the Roy Orbison-admiring, Smiths-influenced band merges the romanticism of mid-century pop with the frenetic energy and spiky intensity of early-millennium indie rock. After a buzzed-about SXSW 2023 set, the band inked with ATO, released debut EP This House Is Made of Corners—produced by Grammy-winner Dave Cobb—and is set to drop its full-length debut later this year.
