Getting the coveted Hottest Record in the World slot on Annie Mac͛s Radio 1 show (their fourth to-date)͚ Are you High?͛ is the latest single from Bad Sounds, on Insanity Records. It͛s the first track the band have written about themselves, a reflective pop anthem with distorted breaks and guitars tackling the issue of appearing stand-offish to their families, missing out on events͞I ain’t sucking on lemons it just looks like it͟. The band have just completed their biggest headline tour to-date, including 4 sold out shows in Bristol, Leeds, Birmingham and Brighton which finished with a one off spectacular SOLD OUT show London͛s Scala, where favourites ͚Wages͛, ͚Meat On My Bones͛, ͚I Feel͛, ͚Avalanche͛ and the new ͚Are You High?͛ soundtracked the all frills feelgood party. Following on from their Radio 1 session, Annie Mac recently invited them to play her AMP Collected show supporting Wolf Alice.
Brothers Ewan and Callum Merrett started on different musical paths before the band was born, Ewan was keen on making hip-hop beats and playing with samples, Callum was more engrossed in the soul, pop and R͛n͛B of Michael Jackson, Marvin Gaye and Curtis mayfield. Combining Ewan and Callum͛s differing styles, they come together create the colorful and unique world that is Bad Sounds.
