Pleased to Meet You: Bad Sav
Not exactly sure where I came across Bad Sav, but I can’t stop playing this song. Somewhere I keep coming back to a vocal crossing between Molly Rankin of Alvvays and Tracyanne Campbell; I can hear hints of both, and adore both equally. Musically, there’s a definite pop leaning, though it’s heavy-handed at various turns. I think it finds a nice balance between shimmering guitar pop and a heavier post-punk vibe…so whoever threw this my way, I appreciate it. The New Zealand trio will release their self-titled album on September 21st via Fishrider Records.
