Bad Weed - 2015 - Bad Weed

Bad Weed is a punk rock band from Vienna, Austria. Bad Weed is their sophomore EP. Bad Weed play a brand of garage rock heavy on the power pop. These songs are catchy without being saccharine, managing to balance melodic hooks with just enough snarl to keep things interesting. They have managed to find the sweet spot between power pop, punk pop and garage rock. The songs are catchy and poppy enough to the soundtrack to a Southern California summer vacation but keep at least one foot in the garage to coat everything with just enough distortion to add some grit. If you're looking for some melodic garage rock Bad Weed's Bad Weed will serve well.
