Bad Suns Release New EP

New band, Bad Suns have just released their new EP ‘Transpose’. The four piece from California consists of lead singer, Christo Bowman, guitarist, Ray Libby, drummer, Miles Morris, and bassist, Gavin Bennett.

The quartet’s sound can easily be compared to that of The 1975, and their indie-pop melodies can be heard throughout their four track EP. It begins with their first single, ‘Cardiac Arrest’, which is a mixture of good melodies and a catchy hook that Bowman carries well through the song.

However, ‘Salt’, is definitely the catchiest out of the tracks.  ‘Salt’ showcases the band’s versatility in producing a different sound and yet still sticking to their indie-pop melody.  ‘Twenty Years’ is one of those songs that is easily forgettable, but you will still find yourself tapping along to Morris’ drumming.

The best track is  ‘Transpose’, and as the title of the EP, this comes as no surprise. This track could really pass off as a The 1975 song, as it picks up the tempo of the whole album.  It’s a song to blast in your car on a road trip with your friends.

Overall, Bad Suns have produced an excellent EP that has allowed them to showcase their talent and earn them a lot of new fans. A full length album is expected later in the year and after getting a taste of ‘Transpose’, it will be one of the highly anticipated albums of 2014.
