Here’s a band to properly smack you in the face- Brad Pot. They come from Melbourne, and they are loud. Insanely loud. A proper treat for the ears.
They make you want to throw your furniture out of the window, smash up some cars and be a nuisance. There’s other ways you can do this that doesn’t result in getting a criminal record, of course. Just depends how far you are willing to go.
Brad Pot are a band that are ruthless with their sound and lyrics. They aren’t a band to make you want to change the world and protest- you don’t always need that. What they do is just cut out all the bullshit in the world, and make something you can just lose your mind to. Sometimes you just need to listen to something that just frees your mind, which then causes your limbs to work in an OTT fashion.
Brad Pot are the saviours we desperately needed, and will always need. They are so effortlessly brilliant. They just have this way of making you want to cause a load of trouble, and deny it all.
Something I adore about them is their way of giving off this real DIY sound. They are a band who do not care for overproduced and hyped up nonsense- everything they are is on their terms. They aren’t hear to impress anyone or whatever; they are doing this because they naturally can. I honestly cannot think of a band past or present that I could link them to. They’re a Garage Rock/Punk band, but genres are just pointless for a band like Brad Pot. They have a really rugged sound that is just meant to be heard as loud as possible. I’ve got them on as loud as I can on my dinner break at work. Their glorious sounds are sailing through my ears and making me annoyingly tap on my desk occasionally. I love these guys, and I just want to do nothing but listen to them.
I love that Brad Pot are basically sticking a middle finger up to all that is expected from bands and how they don’t care for what you think about them. I love how they can easily burst your eardrums within seconds but have you coming back for more. I love it when a band does this. I’ve not felt it often, but Brad Pot do it in a way that you cannot help but respect and basically, idolise.
Brad Pot are the kind of band you’d play at a house party- all through the night. Their songs are the soundtrack to any and everything. They make you want to trash stuff, they make you want to laze about at home and they make you want to wander around aimlessly for hours listening to them, and soaking up everything around you. Their songs ARE for the faint-hearted because they’ll just kick-start you right up. They are this brilliant ball of explosive energy that just makes you wish you could see their shows every night. Imagine that! Imagine just how wild their live shows are!
The band is a wonderfully hyperactive and chaotic musical explosion, and with one listen- you’re just totally hooked. Their music is an absolute pleasure to listen to, and I can’t wait to hear more from them. And I hope they only get louder and louder.
