Some of my local boys, formerly known as Wet Lettuce and the Magik Bean have relaunched themselves as new and improved band; Bad Llama.
Initially an instrumental band these guys didn’t want to settle at second best for a vocalist, Autumn 2013 saw the arrival of super talented vocalist Kyle Jordan and since then the guys have never looked back. Bad Llama are a band with a genuine, distinctive and individual style. They list their influences ranging from Incubus to Rage Against The Machine and you can hear that diversity in their music.
Out this month with their first single The Wolf You Feed Bad Llama are hitting the ground running. As well as audibly pleasing and invigorating, this tune hits you in the chest; every note is heartfelt, every word poignant. Setting out to put Burton Upon Trent on the map, I think these guys really have something.
Check out the single The Wolf You Feed (and video) out June 17th, or catch the preview at the Single Launch Show: THURSDAY 16TH JUNE 2016 – THE SITWELL TAVERN, DERBY. Tickets are £3 and it’s looking to be an amazing night, see you there?
