Bad Suns, Kiev
3939 N Mississippi Ave.
[GROOVY ROCK] Don’t let Bad Suns’ glossy surface fool you. The Southern California band’s debut full-length, Language and Perspective, is undeniably a sleek product, with compressed vocals and poppy melodies seemingly swiped from a Maroon 5 song. But just when you’re about to write them off, a stuttering fill crashes into the chorus, or the band plunges into a downright nasty jam full of clattering bongos. If they play their cards right, this little unit might find its way to being one of the more idiosyncratic voices on soft-rock radio.
