Toronto dark pop duo Bad Channels share new single, playing Canadian dates including NXNE w/ Health
by Bill Pearis
Toronto’s Bad Channels, aka Nick Grottick and Jess Gierusz, got their start in the production world, making atmospheric beats for ISSUE and Kitty Pryde, but soon turned to their own music, as well as their city’s own DIY scene. While still atmospheric, Bad Channels’ new single “Sad Channels,” out June 9 via Buzz Records, falls more into dark postpunk, starting off in fuzzy JAMC territory before opening up into something much more their own. It’s a two minute rush and a stream makes its premiere below.
Bad Channels have a few Canadian dates coming up, including a NXNE show with Health. All dates are listed, along with the song stream, below.
