"Apparently coming from a post-hardcore-punk past, Oakland-based band inject boundless energy into reverb-dusted nostalgic 6-string chords weaving sparkling distorted mesmerizing textures through punchy drum beats, gurgling throbbing bassline, and dreamy, falling male vocals .... 90s guitar tinged melancholic bliss."- White Light/White Heat
With a layered and driving sound held together by soaring effects and even higher volumes, Oakland-based Bad Visuals blends shoegaze atmospherics with punk and post-hardcore influences to craft a style equal parts gritty and melodic.
Previous LP "Petaluma" was recorded with Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Whirr) and released in early 2019, while this spring's upcoming EP "Ravel" was produced by Sam Pura (Hundredth, The Story So Far) and takes the band's sound and aesthetic to new heights.
