Next up is one of the UK's most exciting live acts, Bath band Bad Sounds, who are set to take the Bristol store by storm. The eclectic-sounding 5-piece band fronted by brothers Ewan and Callum Merrett have a sound that’s hard to pin down, which is invariably the sign of something exciting. Debuted as Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record in The World’, Wages is brimming with brass, satisfying harmonies and infectious rhythms that critics say are reminiscent of the euphoric highs of Beck. It all makes for a truly soulful package that has already earned them a fierce fanbase through their festival appearances this summer.
Their incredible 2018 debut album Get Better has made the music industry sit up and take notice. The Merrett brothers had a musically rich upbringing, listening to everyone from Bob Dylan to De La Soul to Michael Jackson – and the luxurious tones of Bad Sounds are nothing if not musically rich.
