Bad Sounds Press Shots 2016, Bath UK

Bad Sounds are a British pop band- Olivia (drums), Sam (bass), Charlie (guitar), and fronted by brothers Ewan and Callum.

Bad Sounds fuse 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.

With 2 singles released, ‘I Feel’ and ‘Avalanche’ they’ve received praise from the likes of The Line Of Best Fit, DIY, CLASH, BEAT and NOISEY and with strong support from the local BBC Introducing show (BBC Intro In the West) the band have gone onto receiving plays from Zane Lowe (Next Hype), Phil Taggart, Huw Stephens and Annie Mac, who subsequently made ‘Avalanche’ her Tune of the Week in June 2016 with an in-radio interview, as well as being invited to play the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury 2016, hosted by Tom Robinson.
