Bad//Dreems Release ‘My Only Friend’
By Zanda Wilson
Fresh pub-style rockers Bad//Dreems have just released a brand new single entitled ‘My Only Friend’. The Adelaide-based four piece have only just come to the end of what was practically a national tour; playing at Laneway, Groovin’ the Moo and Boogie Festival this year already, making this new release all the more remarkable given their short turnaround.
Their last single ‘Dumb Ideas’ has been hailed by triple j as one of the 10 best Aussie songs of 2014 so far, and this new release shows that Bad//Dreems have higher aspirations in mind than the success of one single.
The video for ‘My Only Friend’ is one of the coolest and most real you’ll see from an Aussie rock band, having been put together with footage taken from the band as well as fans at gigs and others on the road as the band toured. The track itself shows a more chilled and reflective side than we’ve seen previously, and was produced by the legendary Mark Optiz who produced tracks with Cold Chisel and AC/DC.
But they’re not about to rest on what has already been an incredible year. Bad//Dreems are about to head off on another tour to celebrate the single’s release, playing shows in September and October across Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, before finishing off at home in Adelaide.
