The group's primary songwriters Marie-Claire Balabanian and Karl Briedrick may not be from Chicago, but they've been based here for quite some time now. In fact, their moody, almost brooding, sound suggests they've been here all along.You can check out Badwater's lead single "Slow So Long" at the bottom of this post in video or audio form.
The band will be going on tour next month with two stops in NYC: February 14 at Ran Tea House in Williamsburg with Natureboy and February 15 at Cake Shop with Cat Martino. All tour dates are below, along with the video and stream.
