Their name might insinuate it, but we feel no bad vibes from Australian emo rockers Bad Juju!
‘Misery Sticks To Me’ is the boys’ brand new single, which sees their emo-tinged offering laced in 2000s grungey undertones. The track is a reflective piece of the vocalist Russell Holland’s depression during the last two years, who like so many of us suffered throughout COVID. The singer shares:
“A lot of us have felt it during the last few years as our lives were turned upside down by COVID. Lyrically, depression speaks to the listener, guiding them to sink into the darkness, offering no escape. Putting pen to paper throughout the pandemic was cathartic, it became an outlet to talk about the low moments that I’m sure we all experienced over the last couple of years. It became an important factor in helping me get through.”
Bad Juju are well worth the add to your playlists, with soaring alternative/rock anthems like ‘What’s Mine Is Yours‘ mirroring 2000s rock superstars Silverchair mixed in with a subtle pop melody akin to that of Good Charlotte. ‘Misery Sticks To Me‘ will also no doubt make you witness the band’s full potential as they continue their mission to emerge as Australia’s next rock superstars.
