Behind the name stands Swedish producer Catharina Jaunviksna, based in Malmö, Sweden & Dublin, Ireland. She started working with sampling and synthesizers as a teenager, whereupon her career slowly but steadily formed towards sound design and music production. After having worked with mainly film scores and produced other bands, she formed Badlands in 2011 to make home for her growing pile of song sketches and musical desires.
With critically acclaimed debut EP/album “Battles Within” (2012), single “Tutu” (2013), the album “Locus” came around in 2016 and became a token for her distinct outlaw sound built upon lush analog synthetics and dark, organic & gritty orchestration. Now she is back with the single “Hearts” in the fall of 2019, as a first taste of the forthcoming album.
