The suavely effective “Bad” is a new track from Cadeaux, the duo of Los Angeles natives Briana Lane (half of female indie duo Winslow) and Darian Zahedi (member of rock band CRX). A playful bass line and smatterings of synths appear alongside Lane’s genial vocals. Soft keys and chiming guitars flow gracefully as the vocals take a pause around the mid-point. Overall, the track casts a hypnotic spell with its lush pop adornments, particularly the bass and synths, and melodic vocal lead. “Bad” was mixed by Shane Stoneback (Vampire Weekend, Rostam, Cults).
“Bad” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2020’ Spotify playlist.
