Bad Mother Nature is a Sacramento-based guitar and piano driven quartet who have been rocking Northern California and beyond since 2016. We first heard from them back in April. The band appeared on the pages of The Static Dive upon the release of their single “Follyman.” That song was a funky bit of social commentary, mixing the group’s powerful and bluesy vibe with a thinly veiled diss on America’s current Commander in Idiocy.
“Rest of Me” is the latest entry in the Bad Mother Nature catalogue of soul-powered Rock & Roll. Built on a driving, thumping rhythm “Rest of Me” is a travelling song. Lyrically and musically the track tells a tale of forward motion and searching. Guitarist/bassist duo Axel Ahrens and Corey Allred, pianist Ryan Allred, and drummer Jon McCann bang out a Classic Rock groove with subtle bits of Prog-Rock complexity. The song’s soulful vocals tell a story of a man who has lost his soul, and he is out to find it. Flashes of honky tonk piano and blues guitar dot the skyline as he travels down the road.
The band has released a string of singles this year in preparation for their new album release, scheduled for a Winter 2020 release. The record will be the sophomore follow-up to their 2019 debut full-length “Porcelain Martyr.” Check out “Rest of Me” on the Deep Indie Dive playlist.
