DIY Warehouse & Underground Arts Space. BYOB.
Y'see, Bad Powers came to be out of an unstoppable trajectory, forming from an energy and heightened creativity for former Made Out of Babies members guitarist Brendan, bassist Cooper and drummer Matthew finding a vital force in pairing with vocalist Megan Tweed (also of The Family Curse). Where MOoB was strictly aggressive pummeling and vocal histrionics, Bad Powers eviscerates with a post-punk subtlety that embraces innovative sounds and instrumentation. Hell, there are even synths and a string section on the album, along with many other special guests. It's smartly brutal, like getting your ass handed to you by Joy Division.
A sprawling Urban landscape like PHX is hard to be creative in, strip Malls and homogenized Fast Food Chains litter the roadways and the subconscious of the sun baked inhabitants. The heavy music scene however throws furious opposition to the status quo and these Valley newcomers are no exception. Drifting between plodding Neurosis-esque power, Math Rock, and a touch of groove Sorxe is helping add fuel to the fire that will set this desert ablaze. Feats: members of Graves At Sea & Via Vengeance.
PARTNERS IN CRIME:
A two piece experimental metal band incorporating electronics, loops, and custom digital effects. Constant changes in time signature and genre keep listeners disoriented while being inundated by some of the most complex heavy music around. Ex. members of Reburn and the Skidmarks, Ikonoklast, London Metal Exchange.
