Bio

Bad Bangs have been gigging around Melbourne on and off for the last few years, and after a name change and something of a hiatus, they’re finally out with their first official release. A staple in their live set since early on in the band’s career, 'Swimming' is a charming slice of garage-pop and a prime example of what the girls do best. It’s all crunchy guitars, melodic bass lines and soulful vocals drifting over the top. With the perfect amount of grit and an equal amount of attitude, 'Swimming' is the perfect cut to present Bad Bangs to the world.

Taking me right back to the time I was obsessed with PJ Harvey. You girls are SO cool. Another jam to add to that playlist.

this is the order that things went down:

pressed play, foot started tapping, pressed view profile, saw angel murlocs and ty segull and smiled, foot nearly kicked over plant at the end of the couch, realised definitely for sure that this is a very cool song and i like it. pressed play again.
