"You probably know The 1975 from their latest single 'Sex'. The song's full of swirling hooks, lustful, sleazy lyrics and vocals that carry an edge of charm with them. There's no denying 'Sex' is an anthem you can't help but sing along to. Yet, The 1975 aren't just a one hit wonder. Their second EP, with the same name, hosts a collection of sounds venturing away from just guitar tracks to electronic indie pop.
Bad Suns are a band from Los Angeles. The band's back history is minimal: founded at the top of 2012, and spending the majority of that year writing and recording. However, in the first month of the band's existence, after sending out a demo of the song "Transpose" to KROQ 106.7 FM, Kat Corbett decided to air the song on their Locals Only program. Much to the band's surprise, the song reigned in the top 5 of the show for nearly three months (reaching number one on three separate occasions.)
This was an encouraging response for only a demo. The band continued writing, and in June entered Infrasonic Studios in Los Angeles, with producer Eric Palmquist (Wavves, Aloe Blacc, Trash Talk). The band quickly began to attain a steady Los Angeles following, playing to packed houses within the area (The Troubadour, Viper Room) and generating local buzz. "Cardiac Arrest" was chosen as the first single from these sessions.
"Fast-forward to 2013, and [Chris] Bowman and pals Miles Kottak, Gavin Bennett and Ray Libby — still in their late teens — are Bad Suns, and they are looking and sounding a lot more grown-up. Their crackling radio rocker “Cardiac Arrest” was recorded at Infrasonic Studios with producer Eric Palmquist (Wavves, Aloe Blacc, Trash Talk) and reveals a sensibility far beyond the band’s years." --BuzzBands LA
