Album of the Week: Language & Perspective by Bad Suns

Wednesday, December 1st, 2021 by Ronnie Gruseck

“Language & Perspective” by Bad Suns

Reviewed by: Ben Ostrowski

Pop songs can take you on a journey in 3 minutes, and this is exactly what this song does. It sounds catchy, it’s simple and quite lovely.

Bad Suns are a Californian-based quartet whose slick hooks earned them a spot on today’s song of the week! Their song “Cardiac Arrest” was released with their album “Language & Perspective” and was an instant hit. One of the song’s greatest attributes is its echo, especially during the intro. This reverberating into lick builds up to a neo-new wave guitar fill and an insanely catchy drum beat that will stay stuck in your head for weeks.

With finals going on, you’ll need some catchy and relaxing music to calm you down, and Bad Suns will deliver just that every single time.
