Bad Love need “A Place For Me”
Bad Love make Sad-Boy Pop. Forming in 2019 near the rainy city of Manchester, they combine the cinematic allure of new-romantic icons like The Cure and Tears For Fears, with the heartfelt and anthemic pop-hooks of artists like LANY, MUNA and The 1975. For frontman Andy Gannon, Bad Love is about wearing your heart on your sleeve, and making art with sincerity in a digital age where it is scarce.
Supported by Sam Fieldhouse, Tommy O’Neill and Ben Tansey and looking like they’re straight from 90s teen vogue, Bad Love don’t shy away from being emotionally candid and have big dreams about making their mark on British music. “A Place For Me” is a story about finding a new love with someone with trust and commitment issues after having their heart broken. It explores the idea that whilst new love can be intoxicating and seductive; heartbreaks of the past can put walls up between people.
Effortlessly combining contemporary, synth-pop sounds with earnest, heartfelt lyrics, Bad Love create a hypnotic brand of pop music, as joyful as it is introspective. Elevated further by charismatic frontman Andy Gannon, who’s yearning for sincerity and vulnerability, in a world that wants to be everything but, radiates throughout.
“Everyone has been hurt, love is often tragedy and heartbreak isn’t like the movies. This song is about trying to move on and not carry your past with you. I’ve been on both sides, I’ve pushed people away and messed it all up because I wasn’t in the right place and I’ve been on the receiving end of someone else’s wrongs. Sometimes it’s about just not wanting to be seen through the lens of a previous love” Andy tells us.
Bad Love’s third single, “A Place For Me”, is released through Republic Of Music while the quartet waste no time to make their mark on the Music Industry, the band have already released two singles gaining support from Spotify playlists, BBC Radio and many tastemaker blogs. Now with “A Place For Me” along with further singles and an EP already due for release, Bad Love are determined to cement their place as ones to watch!
