Fresh from a 12-date tour of the UK and a sold-out east coast tour of Australia, Bad//Dreems are hitting the road for tour which will thankfully, include the Gold Coast. And they’re bringing Green Buzzard – just signed to label I OH YOU, with them.
Bad//Dreems is one of the most exciting guitar acts in the country and they absolutely set tongues wagging after their two breakthrough singles Dumb Ideas and Cuffed and Collared. Now they have a debut LP to their name, in the form of Dogs at Bay and lead single Hiding to Nothing and its associated video consolidate this four-piece’s position as serious players!
A good deal of Bad/Dreems’ debut LP Dogs At Bay is about the band’s relationship with Adelaide. As guitarist Alex Cameron states…
“At its best it is an idyllic town, with a temperate climate and beautiful surrounds,” guitarist Alex Cameron said. “At its worst it is stiflingly conservative, inward looking and somewhat bereft of culture.”
“The record is about growing up and living in Adelaide, as well as leaving and returning there. There’s nothing parochial about this though. It’s just what we know. I think the experiences are probably common to everyone who has a hometown.”
Hiding To Nothing is available digitally, on CD and on vinyl with digital download. Get details at baddreems.com.
And these four lads from Adelaide will be in our hometown on Saturday 17 October at Miami Shark Bar.
