Introducing a classic rock arrangement fused with an equally classic, nostalgically cool manner of writing to explore the complexities of love, songwriter and artist Brannon aims high once again with the well-captured and passionate Bad Love.
Featuring distorted guitars and the raw crash of live drums, the track has the makings of an arena rock hit, but has been produced to a crisp and contemporary degree for clarity of sound and that essential ability to crank up the volume.
Brannon’s vocal lead is familiar, born to perform in this way, as ever, but mixing things up this time around is a creatively unexpected feature from rapper R Reed. The latter half takes things towards the hard-rock and hip hop collaborations of a simpler decade, though with the prog-rock and theatrical style to the hook here we get a generally fresh and likable alternative.
Really nicely done, radio-ready and effectively walking the line between underground indie and that mainstream chemistry that lets a track reach a much broader audience.
