Late in 2015, Bad Sounds set the bar with their Lo-Fi indie smash ‘Banger‘ (which does exactly as it says on the tin). With their latest release ‘Avalanche‘, not only have they kicked it up a notch, but they’ve proved to the world that they are anything but a one-trick pony.
Relaxed and effortlessly cool, ‘Avalanche‘ is a shimmering piece of pop-perfection, packing immense groove and a polished finesse. Talk about an ear-worm; this track will barge in, kick back, and reside within your head for days. It won’t budge.
‘Avalanche‘ does everything you could ever ask of a pop song. It is playful and sort of tongue-in-cheek, and if you’re looking for a bassline to fall in love with, this is certainly a contender. The lyrics are brilliantly fun, too. With lines such as ‘didn’t know him well, but once when we were twelve, she lent him 50p and never got her money back’ delivered with such an irresistable dose of cheek and chutzpah, resistance is futile – you will fall in love with this song. Oh, not to mention, the chorus carries enough groove to lose yourself in that you may actually never return.
With support from the likes of Radio X and BBC Introducing in the bag, 2016 is set to be a huge year for Bad Sounds.
