Badd Energy - How Do You Sleep

Badd Energy

How Do You Sleep

On the brink of releasing their anticipated second record ‘Underwater Pyramids’ local noize foursome Badd Energy are celebrating with their new single ‘How Do You Sleep’.

The surreal and unsettling video is the brainchild of Auckland director (a.k.a Moppy and Wilberforces band-member) Thom Burton.

Badd Energy are a psychedelic mix of guitars, drum machines and genres. Sam Moore, Coco Solid, Trixie Darko and J.Suave make up this trippy quartet that kick out motley jams blending stoner-swamp riffs with laid back 808 raps. Their single first ‘Third Eye’ hit #1 on both Bfm and Radio 1, Dunedin in 2011 and was followed by second track Ba-Zing which also reached #1 on Radio 1.

Underwater Pyramids is set for release in February 2013 on Flying Nun Records.

Upcoming Badd Energy shows:
December 1 - BOX: Revolution Girl Style Now, 10pm. $7/$10. 8 Wigan St, Wellington
December 7Rising Tides Festival, Puppies, Wellington
December 15 - Mighty Mighty, Wellington

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
