Norfolk's finest BAD TOUCH have released their first single from the upcoming new 'Shake A Leg' album due for release under Marshall Records on 5th October this year. With the trademark warmth and depth to the southern drawl vocals, 'Skyman' is dedicated to "skydog" Duane Allman. The new single is joyous and causes dancing without abandon, with a super cool bass and the impressive dual guitar attack underlined by a solid drum beat, and an incredibly infectious chorus.
For a bunch of guys from Norfolk they have that authentic southern feel down pat. These guys have been together for over 8 years now and I've seen them support numerous bands as well as their first headline show. Their stage presence is immense, their skill and talent unquestionable and their hair simply lush. Seriously though, they bring something extra to the live show that doesn’t always come through on a record so check them out.
Bad Touch have a sound that is influenced by any or all of the following; Black Crowes, The Answer, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rival Sons and Little Angels. Westwood is a great frontman with just the right amount of swagger and heaps of big vocals to get his teeth into, ably accompanied by a tight rhythm section and some impressive guitar work from Glendinning and Seekings.
I love this single, it's becoming one of my favourite of theirs. 'Skyman' is available to buy as a digital download, and as an instant gratis track with all pre-orders of the new album. Catch Bad Touch on tour this autumn with support from Aaron Buchanan & The Cult Classics and Daxx & Roxane.
