The Bad Flowers are a threesome rock and roll band from Cannock, England. The rock trio are set to release their new self-titled EP “The Bad flowers” on the 4th of November 2016. The band consists of Tom Leighton (Guitar/Vocals), Dale Tonks (Bass/Vocals) and Karl Selickis (Drums). The Bad Flowers will attract fans of The Who and Led Zeppelin as they have a very similar sound.
The first track is Can You Feel It, This track has some nice guitar riffs from Tom especially the when his little guitar solo comes up which is superb and vocals are impressive and clear. The lyric “can you feel my pain” is the lyric that gets stuck in my head after listening to it a few times.
The second track is City Lights, I really like the opening tune of this track with Tom’s very rock sounding voice and he’s got a really good talented voice. The drum beats pattern from Karl are very consistent and gets me lightly head banging to the tune. Again the guitars are really good.
The third track is Big Country, this song is beautifully written. “I’ve seen it all the rivers and the mountains and the tallest trees”, I really like this chorus with Tom’s melodic vocals. The guitar riffs, bass line and drums are good and make this track very catchy and beautiful to listen to.
The final track is Run, Run, Run, the instrumental at the start is very impressive with a mixture of good guitar riffs and consistent drum beats and a good bass line. The chorus is very groovy “I gotta run, run, run find my way home. I got this god damn fear of the unknown”, this chorus is very catchy and I really like this chorus.
This EP is full of very catchy and groovy rock tracks. This EP shows some impressive vocals from Tom and some sweet backing vocals from Dale. The guitar riffs and bass line of all these tracks are strong. The talent of these 3 men definitely shine through on these tracks. You should definitely check this EP out and support these talented people.
