We first heard from Quince & 9th last year upon the release of their debut EP, “Clover Lane.” With that record we were introduced to a brand new Southern California band with a unique style that combines their love of Alternative Rock with a shared Latino heritage. It is a raw, high energy energy vibe and a lot of fun. Now, on the one year anniversary of that release, the San Diego band has delivered a brand new single to commemorate the event. This time they’ve turned their amps down a bit for a (mostly) acoustic and musically mature classic Jazz-infused Pop/Rock sound.
“Bad Ones” is the latest single from Quince & 9th, released worldwide to all major streaming services on February 19, 2021. The track opens with a funky acoustic guitar/bass groove. Right off the bat we notice the intricate interplay between Eli (vocals/guitar), Adam (bass), Jesus (drums) and Marcos (guitar). A kinetic and melodic bass line weaves in an out of jazzy guitar chords and a solid funk groove.
Lyrically the song is an allegory of sorts. It’s a tale of warning to all young men at risk of falling victim to manipulative femme fatales, or as Eli calls them “Bad Ones.” The singer delivers the tale with soul and style. As the song progresses things heat up a bit with bigger drums and harder rocking guitars. It’s a great groove that hints at a Classic Rock sound.
