Bad Reed’s self titled EP evokes many nostalgic feeling with only three tracks(!), each lovingly crafted to display the band’s wide musical range.
From the melancholic folksy humming of “Slackjaw Romance”, to the edgy slightly gothic undertones of “Cassava”, to the classic Americana rock&roll of “Punch It”. Bad Reed displays its diversity. But also, a firm sense of identity.
This feels like a band with a violent urge to create. Pulled in many musical directions, like a kite in the storm. Definitely looking forward to seeing what they come up with in the near future.
