Booking Request

Following debut single 'I Feel' in December 2015, and receiving 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, Bad Sounds return with the release of new single 'Avalanche', out 29th April via Killing Moon Records.

Co-produced by Duncan Mills (Peace / Spector), the Bath based 5-piece take their upbeat-pop sound to new levels; fusing 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 play 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

"Bath-based brothers Bad Sounds revel in a woozy pop sensibility and a toothy grin" - DIY Magazine
