Tag Archive: “Lovely Bad Things”

The legend of Lovely Bad Things began in an eerily boring town called La Mirada which is nestled between Los Angeles and Orange County, a fitting place for a band to find solace in music. Brothers Camron (guitar, vocals) and Brayden Ward (drums, vocals) met Lauren Curtius (guitar, vocals), Tim Hatch (guitar) and Wesley Baxter (bass) during their formative years, and joined forces to create a perfect blend of the most infectiously resonant aspects of their alternative and punk predecessors. 

To date, Lovely Bad Things have played countless house shows and local venues, embarked on several cross-country solo tours, as well as with Best Coast and Diarrhea Planet, and have performed festivals including FYF, SXSW and Primavera Sound. Their sound falls within the realm of Pavement, Dinosaur Jr., Weezer and the like.

Naturally, Lovely Bad Things meticulously craft and distribute their music with a respectable DIY ethos. All album artwork and merch are made from scratch by Brayden, and each member of the band contributes in songwriting and multi-instrumentation. Their hard work puts a giant emphasis on the Grown Ups end, while their hilarious and charmingly chaotic energy screams teenage. Whether you’re in your own young confusion searching for music to make you feel like you’re not alone, a music snob who has a pessimistic outlook on anything post ’90s, or simply a lover of music, Lovely Bad Things should be in heavy rotation. 

The band recently released their Homebodied EP via Burger Records and today they share the delightful video for “Hiding To Nothing” with Ghettoblaster. Enjoy it below:
