Impish pop perfectionists, Bad Pop, are back with the follow up to their debut single ‘Bad Pop’ with double A-Side Same House/Masculism’ ! We were treated to this pure slice of B.P at the end of March and can’t wait to hear more from this trio.

The band have been steaming along since their debut release, with praise from the likes of Huw Stephens (Radio 1), Phil Taggart (Radio 1/VEVO) & Abbie McCarthy (BBC Introducing) cementing the Bad Pop grooves nationwide. This year they completed a series of triumphant shows at SXSW in association with Metro/Reverb Nation, one of which was transmitted live across the interweb via that well known social media platform ‘Facebook’!

The first trackSame House is an intoxicating mix of the discordant mastery of Pavement, the lyrical and rhythmic tone of Pixies and the pop sensibilities of Weezer, while the second track ‘Masculism’ is a short sharp shot to the arm pulling riffs from Queens of the Stone Age and building to emotional crescendo akin to Wolf Alice while casting an ironic eye over modern masculinity.

Frontman Chris says of the opening track: “Same House is actually the first song we wrote as Bad Pop and it’s taken a lot of different forms. There’s a straight ahead Rock n Roll version, a Stoner Rock version, and finally we settled on the version you’re hearing now: psychedelic disco pop. The song is about ignoring common wisdom and forging your own path in life, a youthfully romanticized idea that becomes increasing difficult to pull off and people stop caring about your “path“.”

You’re taken on a true journey with this double A-side, encapsulating melodies draw you in to the Bad Pop way and have you craving more catchy hooks from these pop masters! ‘Same House‘ takes the Track Of The Week title for us, but you can listen to both tracks below!

In the band’s own words ‘we are serious about not taking ourselves too seriously’. You can get ahead of the curve and order the single here.
