I received a SoundCloud message from Bristol-based collective Bad Places requesting I check out their music, and I’m glad I did, specifically “Confessions” from their debut EP. It has that cool, early 90’s trip hop groove that’s difficult to pull off, but they do so very well on this track.
Putting that aside this is no copy and paste, Bad Places are carving out their own musical lane, and their SoundCloud page is a testament to that.
The collective consisting of Juliette Motamed (Vocalist), Marco Stellardi (Rapper), Sam Jones (Drums, Guitar) and Alex Lyons (Songwriter, Guitar, Producer) have certainly piqued our interest.
With the beautiful vocals of singer Motamed, controlled yet still very emotive, a quietly delivered verse from Stellardi and a rather lush beat courtesy of Lyons the music of Bad Places pretty much speaks for itself. Play and download (for free).
Can’t wait to see what next they have in store.
