Bad Wave- Runaway

Ugh, I'm not quite sure how I feel about this one friends. On the one hand, I'm digging the throwback power-synth driving the song forward, but I hit some parts of "Runaway" and get the teeniest tiniest voice in the back of my head telling me this kind of belongs in a musical written in 1984... NAWT my favorite genre of music. Nor is it anyone's... except maybe Helen Keller #toosoonstill?. But overall, I'm vibing to Bad Wave's latest. The track is a journey and a fucking half, giving us a delightfully unexpected (but welcome) history of electronic music. "Runaway" is laced with everything from '60's vintage electric guitar to real heavy, emphasized '80's synth. Yet the whole thing still somehow manages to sound contemporary and fresh. Not to mention the whole of track is dripping in perfectly-honeyed pop vocals. That Thomas Mars / Jon Bellion styled singing is the key to any girl's heart, Bad Wave. Never smoke cigarettes. Or insure your vocals chords like they are David Beckham's calves and smoke all yah want! Ur choice. I just thing you should be making some serious denario off of those wonderfully saturated vocals.
