These alternative rockers from Los Angeles like to submerge their songs in heavy layers of grungy guitar noise. Provocative and driving, filmic and epic: Led Zeppelin meets grunge. And yet, a lot is revealed in the darkness. Frontman Josh Katz, singer/guitarist and composer, writes with heartrending candour about his mental health, or rather lack there of. A subject that resonates deeply, if the millions of streams of their ‘hit’ Ghost is anything to go by. In this song, Katz deals impressively with his personal fears, depressions, panic attacks and suicidal tendencies. Not for nothing is Badflower’s debut record, which came out at the beginning of this year, entitled OK, I’m Sick.
