Baddies have a new single out on the 11th of June called ‘Rewire’ and what are they doing in the promo video for the song? I don’t want to let on what actually happens. You’ll have to watch the video below yourself.



MP3 of the Day (and more!) #477: Baddies

Baddies‘ next single, released on the 30th of January, is for the song ‘Bronto’. Is it a monster of a song? Does it have bite? The band are offering the song for a free download for a limited time. I’m rather liking it myself, it’s got Futureheads attack immediacy. You can also watch the promo video below too.

Baddies’ next album ‘Build’ will be out on the 5th of March.

Bands to Watch #110: Baddies

By on Tuesday, 5th May 2009 at 2:00 pm

Baddies (side live)Baddies are a (little-difficult-to-label-genre-wise) quartet from just down the road from me in sunny Southend-on-Sea. The Essex coastal town has speedily become a spectacular musical-hub of activity in the past few years – producing acts such as The Horrors, Get Cape Wear Cape Fly and These New Puritans – so are Southend’s latest turnout set to be as successful as their fellow locals?

Well, yes I think so, considering Baddies have been bigged-up by pretty much everyone in the music industry of late.

Everywhere I look, Baddies are compared to Queens of the Stone Age. While I understand the relation (both bands knock out heavy, bass-led tunes), I personally don’t feel this is a thoroughly fit comparison. With their dapper shirts and pointed hair, they both look, and sound a little more like, say…The Futureheads…but a whole lot more rough and ready! Frontman Michael Webster swiftly alternates between his raw, punk-esque vocals to a much more softer, indie-pop sound come their addictively catchy choruses. Furthermore, the band’s frantic harmonies often echo those of glow-stick favourites, Klaxons, while their dark riffs and energetic drums (provided by Michael’s identical twin, Jim, by the way), are known to quickly whip audiences up into an adrenaline-filled frenzy.

All in all, this band are filled with quirky attitude and their buzzing tunes certainly look set to be big in the coming months. Hit Baddies’ MySpace page now to learn more.
