Inspired by the cute nickname that vocalist Cooper gave to her cat, Bad Sidekick‘s latest single ‘Lemon Eyes’ is a buoyant ode to genuine, selfless love. Taken from the band’s upcoming debut album Daily Lottery, which is set for release on 19th August, the track is full of upbeat riffs, tender lyrics and Cooper’s charming Bristolian intonation, warmly reflecting on the joy that comes with nurturing someone you love, and watching that relationship blossom into something truly comfortable and secure.
Formed of Cooper Rose (vocals), Robbie Jenner (bass), Joe Blount (guitar) and John Blount (drums), Bad Sidekick create alt-rock anthems inspired by the nuances of everyday life. Based between London and Bristol, the band released their debut self-titled EP back in 2018, and since Robbie Jenner joined the ranks earlier this year, they’ve been busy writing and recording their debut album, Daily Lottery. They released the gritty, eponymous track from the album as a single earlier this month, but with their new single ‘Lemon Eyes’ the band showcase their softer side, courtesy of a catchy chorus and playful riffs.
To celebrate the release of their upcoming record, Bad Sidekick will be playing an album launch gig on the 19th August in Bristol at The Crofters Rights, supported by Annabel Allum, Sit Down and Holy Reptile. They will also be playing a London show on 3rd September at The Finsbury Pub supported by The Baby Seals, Brie and Holy Reptile.
