THE RICH HANDS of San Antonio, TX sent us over their new 7″ with their single Bad Girl on Fountain Records. This will eventually lead to their upcoming full-length record which we should see later this year.
“Bad Girl” is an infectious and crunchy pop nugget driven by bright, hook-heavy guitars and Cody Mauser’s blown-out croon. Operating on a short and straight to the point formula, pop simplicity is the key in a song like this. Flip sides and they totally change gears on B-side “La Luna” for a blitzing surf-rock instrumental. Crashing drums and noisy, mangled textures gives the track its evil, menacing qualities, revealing sharp and twangy soloing that is the main focus of the track. Toward the end there’s a gradual decline in volume and intensity as things seem to die out, however it’s only a trick to catch you off-guard when the guitars regain consciousness and jump back down your throat. Listen to the 7″ below then sit tight for their full length later this year.
