Slugs’ Sarsten Noice Surprises Blurred Culture With Surprise Baby
LOS ANGELES, CA-
“…The opening act for the evening was Surprise Baby, the musical project fronted by Slugs‘ Sarsten Noice. I’d been following Slugs for a few years now. I had no idea that Sarsten had her own thing as well. In fact, if my Instagram sleuthing is any good, her original project was called Hydrokitten before changing it up to Surprise Baby sometime in 2018.
I was really feeling Surprise Baby’s set. All of the music was new to me, and I really got into those laid-back, indie rock jams that Sarsten and company kicked out. They performed about 8-9 songs and though I didn’t know any of them, I found it easy to get lost in their groove and just fall under the spell of Sarsten’s wonderfully delicate vocals. I was particularly enamored with this song. With the ascending melody line, the hypotonic guitar riff, and the perfectly in tune harmonies sung by none other than Marisa (from Slugs), that song was about as dreamy as dreamy gets. Loved it.
I’m really anxious to hear studio recordings of the songs Surprise Baby played and will keep an ear out for updates. In the meantime, Sarsten and Surprise Baby set up a gofundme to raise money to film a music video for their debut single, “Poison The Well”. With a goal of raising $8,000.00, they hit $7,973 as of 4/17/22 at 8:55 pm. How about you throw in a few bucks to push them over the edge?…”
