BAD POP have grown up, and they’re kind of pissed off about it. So, this indie rock band turned
to every teenager’s refuge: distortion pedals and sarcasm.
This Canadian trio are furious but refreshing, a deluge of raw punk rock energy, warm analog
psychedelia, and cheeky nihilistic musings on music festivals, fast food and the loneliness of
The live show is two-hundred percent fun and fury. Previous incarnation of the band, Hot Panda,
drove five tour vans into the ground with dozens of tours and festival runs throughout North
America and Europe (Primavera, CMJ and Reeperbahn).
Following the self titled debut single ‘Bad Pop’, the band have been backed by the likes of
MistaJam and Huw Stephens at Radio 1 as well as being featured by Phil Taggart for Vevo
dscvr. Follow up single ‘Same House/Masculinity’ saw continued support as they were added to
the New Names feature at Radio 1 before playing multiple official showcases at SXSW and The
Great Escape.
Live, frontman Chris Connelly is alternatively heartwarming and menacing, like a pissed-off Weird
Al. Superstar multi-instrumentalist Catherine Hiltz weaves melodic bass lines like a punk-rock barbrawling
PJ Harvey. Drummer Aaron Klassen was raised on a steady diet of Bonham and Grohl,
and plays as if the snare just said something about his mother. In the band’s own words ‘we are
serious about not taking ourselves too seriously.’
