Bad Manors are an alternative rock band from London and Leeds. Their new track is called One Year Plan and it’s a bit of a surprise package.
By Graeme Smith
After a mellow start, One Year Plan explodes into a jangly, discordant chorus which is just the right type of noise. Guitars overlap, vocals seem at the edge of breaking, drums are bashed and cymbals crash. I think what caught my ear the most was the similarities to early Modest Mouse in the sense that they take something melancholic and make it transcendent. As do Bad Manors.
The band are fairly new to the scene but I think they definitely have some life in them. You best keep an eye out for them when live music is back in full swing.
