"Under The Influence is a film score reinvented; it contains the movie's troubled mood and themes, turning them into a slinky ode to instability and imperfection. - The Fader
"A feminine reinterpretation of post-2010 James Bond in post-coital, xanax infused mysterio-interim." - Flaunt Magazine
“Both fresh and like it’s been around for a hundred years, a standard from a different world.” - Stereogum
"Babinski plays violin and guitar on compositions that are often elegant and fully realized, akin to the early work of St. Vincent." - LA Weekly
"Over a dark and loping country rhythm, Babinski skates her vocals with a delicate grace, the brittle timbre of her voice recalling both Björk and The Cardigans’ Nina Persson." - FLOOD

Stream: "Terror" via Bandcamp
After helming her solo project Steady Holiday through a breakout 2016, with accolates that include being named LA Weekly's Best Solo Artist and Consequence Of Sound profiling the band as one of Five Rising LA Artists You Need to HearDre Babinski woke up on November 9th with a need to respond. Three new songs were written in a month and recorded the next, each dealing with our new reality in different ways, collected here in the Terror EP. A gorgeous remix and a home recording of a new, hopeful song light the way forward. Featuring Josh Adams (Jenny Lewis) and produced by Gus Seyffert (The Black Keys, Beck), the Terror EP will be released by Infinite Best (Mr Twin Sister, Islands) in April 2017 digitally and on CD, the latter combined with her debut LP Under the Influence.

The Fader has premiered the new video for "Terror" from the upcoming EP and said, "'Terror,'  is a spooky, orchestral pop track that bubbles with tension like a psychological thriller under lead singer Dre Babinski's gentle voice. The video for "Terror" is, well, terrifying: while cleaning her house, a woman finds a rat-like creature that will not die — a proper metaphor for fears and anxieties that become destructive when you try to shove them away without thought." 

About the video Dre Babinski says, "I wanted to make something that combined totally overt absurdity with the grooves of fear and xenophobia that have been deepening in our country." She adds, "Both the video and song describe a character that is threatened by an unknown, and thinks/acts before taking the time to understand. It is upsetting to see that kind of reactiveness becoming common and accepted at every level, not just in our government but also in our homes and communities. It's a bit of a cautionary tale. Also, my director (Joseph Armario) and I really wanted to make a monster."

Steady Holiday will be touring this spring with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and Mitski and will include performances in Philadelphia, New York, Boston and more. The band also announced a hometown EP release show taking place on April 7 at Resident. Tickets are for the release show are available HERE
