Rochester is 200,000 inhabitants town in the State of New York, and by the way it is a sister city of my currrent home town Würzburg. Way more important, it is home to Kate Rogers and Jay Trovato who together are Grungegaze duo Bad Bloom. Formed in 2019, they released their debut EP "Candle" in the same year. After the planned 2020 tour had to be canceled due to... 2020 things, Bad Bloom did not lose their passion for atmospheric, emotional, and dynamic rock music. The result of their recent works is the EP on hand, called "Leave".

"Leave" features five tracks of sensual, thoughtful, and psychedelic music. Driven by the energy of late-90s Grunge and Alternative Rock sound, loaded with fuzzy effects, and illuminated by colourful Dream Pop and Shoegaze, Bad Bloom have created a deeply soulful EP. The soundscapes on "Leave" are defined by an impressive alloy of heaviness and reverie. This sound perfectly musicks the themes of escapism concerned in the five songs. Bad Bloom intonate an honest and comprehensible picture of life between all of its heaviness on the one hand, and the hopes and dreams that keep us alive on the other.

"Leave" is an EP to close your eyes to, a release to light a candle, maybe pour a glass of wine (I'd go with dry red here), and enjoy every breath. Bad Bloom have produced a beautiful sonic journey for the dreamers, the lovers. and the thoughtful here.
