BAD SOUNDS

Saturday 9 September 2017

As sibling musicians growing up in Chippenham, Ewan and Callum Merrett had differing taste with Callum engrossed in the soul, pop and RnB of Michael Jackson and Ewan more of a fan of hip-hop.

Inspired by the 2010 film Scott Pilgrim v The World the pair were inspired to merge their musical tastes and form a band.

As they began writing songs, they found that they each had their individual aspects to add; Ewan was the musical wunderkind while Callum had a knack for earworm hooks and visual pizzazz.

The result was musical gold in the form of their debut album Living Alone, a hip-quaking mix of Jungle, Beck, Metronomy and 70s disco.

Named the Guardian’s Band of the Week in November 2016, they’ve also been on the BBC’s radar as one to watch.
