According to the bio on the band’s site, Bad Veins was originally intended to be a solo project for singer Benjamin Davis, and only after playing one gig, drummer Sebastian Schultz was brought in. The Cincinnati duo’s resulting music is a mix of downtrodden electro and punk, as evidenced by the two tracks we’re posting today; “Go Home” has manufactured beats, smoky horns and melancholy. “Gold and Warm” boasts a more jagged take to on the melancholy. I’m equally enamored with both.
The band is set to start a quick tour with Frightened Rabbit, and then five dates with Two Door Cinema Club after that. And for some reason, they have a longer set of dates with the post-hardcore Thrice. The first couple of pairings seem more apropos, but whatever works. Check out the dates they have lined up over at their website, and have an excellent weekend.
