The legacy of The Rugrats’ favorite stuffed animal T-Rex lives on in the music of Athens, Georgia band Reptar (yes, that is where the name comes from). Delivering “disco dust” grooves, Reptar’s fun, lighthearted vibe makes them a must for any summer playlist. I’m also loving vocalist Graham Ulicny’s amazing whimpering voice reminiscent of Oberhofer.
Reptar teamed up with producer Ben Allen (Deerhunter, Washed Out, Animal Collective) for their debut album Body Faucet, which has got fans bodies dripping with sweat (see what I did there…?).
The boys just released a music video for the poppy “Sebastian” which shows the band having a little Apple Photo Booth fun in video form. I’ll be honest, the merged faces freak me out a little bit, but the video is pretty intriguing nonetheless with a Saint Sebastian storyline. Check it out:
Body Faucet is out on Vagrant now. They are Reptar, Hear Them Roar!
