Croydon trio Bad Sign have little more than eighteen months experience together as a band and have intelligently spent that time in the recording studio and on the road, creating their unique sound and winning fans as far afield as Germany in the process.
Bad Sign formed after bonding over a viewpoint that too many artists were compromising their integrity for the sake of pleasing a fan base and drawing on their own mixed bag of influences including primarily Biffy Clyro, Everytime I Die and Led Zeppelin.
Their brand new five track EP, Exit, is released on April 25th through Bangers, Clive! Records, featuring an overriding theme of escapism.
The songs here are entrenched in a sense of desperation and longing for something more or something better than what already exists, be it from a personal relationship or life itself.
While their influences are loud and clear on the EP, the content remains unmistakably original, the songs are swathed in epic backdrops and winding, gritty riffs declaring Bad Sign’s ambition of being serious about their music, totally uncontaminated by pretence and image.
This collection will reward anyone who takes the time to listen and is a promising start for Bad Sign who prove that they have the material and are more than capable of achieving their ambitions, albeit on their own terms.
