Single review: Stained Glass – Bad Reed


Ain’t it wonderful when you press play and within two seconds you’re already hooked on a song?

Bad Reed‘s new single ‘Stained Glass’ is just one of those musical bangers that grabs you by the ears from the get-go – first with a huge, fat grooving bass line, then the captivating vocal of Sydney Sollazzo, and well it all just kicks on from there.

The Canadians have put together a funky, rocky, 60s, 70s, modern, trippy blend of big riffs, sassy vocals and some proper proggy musical interludes in between the catchy verses and choruses – it’s a sound you just can’t help but enjoy.

This musical melting pot of an audio experience is captured perfectly in the psychedelic video to accompany the song – Sollazzo playing some kind of woodland pixie who gives her fellow bandmates a mind-bending substance during a camping trip. Cue image distorting effects and spaced out looks.
