BAD SOUNDS+ SOCIAL STATE
Debut single ‘I Feel’ released in December 2015, received praise from everyone from The Line Of Best Fit to NOISEY and radio spins from Zane Lowe (Next Hype), Phil Taggart, Annie Mac and Huw Stephens at Radio 1.
Follow up single ‘Avalanche’ released in April 2016 was co-produced by Duncan Mills (Peace / Spector), fused cheerful pop hooks, fuzzy guitar lines and an undeniably addictive chorus, bringing sounds of the 70′s and 80′s into the 90′s Brit-Pop era, with a twist.
Bad Sounds played a run of UK festivals in support of the single including appearances at Field Day, Dot To Dot, The Great Escape and Glastonbury as art of the BBC Introducing stage line up.
“Crisp electro pop, crunching guitar lines, the odd pleading vocal… it all adds up to a perfect pop confection” - Clash Magazine
“The adventurous pop sensibilities of Bombay Bicycle Club with the funky leanings of Jungle” - The Line Of Best Fit
