Bad Reed – “Stained Glass”

stained-glass

Ontario-based Bad Reed impressed this past January with their three-song eponymous EP. On that release, Sydney Sollazzo’s emotive vocals leading the way over melodic guitar twangs, lush acoustics, and a vibrant rhythm section in a receptive style of alternative-rock that’s radio-friendly but also structurally inventive. A new track, “Stained Grass”, was released this past month, alongside a video (below). Sollazzo’s vocals remain charismatic in swiftly alternating between cool verses and an uplifted chorus, while the track pursues an electric-minded approach within that central hook that alternates nicely between lush acoustics and a very bustling rhythm section. It’s an eclectic and colorful effort that follows up the band’s earlier EP well.
