CONTEMPLATES ANOTHER LIFE ON
“TIRED OF BEING OVER YOU”
SECOND SINGLE FROM UPCOMING ALBUM OUT JULY 23rd, 2021
(single available to press by request)
NEW ALBUM NAKED NEIGHBOR SET FOR RELEASE AUGUST 13TH
The Brooklyn collective’s Daft Punk-style stomper combines Sam Behr’s powerful vocals with a dream-like narration about another life that’s become farther and farther away
“Tired of Being Over You”, the second single from Bad Business Club’s upcoming Naked Neighbor album, functions as an anthem for moments of reflection about past lovers on the walk home from a night out on the dance floor. Crafted during a week-long writing session in Puerto Rico, “Tired of Being Over You” speaks to the finality of a separation; with inspiration drawn from Miles Davis’ E.S.P album cover - his last with first wife Frances Taylor, whom he divorced shortly after- on the single’s promotional artwork itself.
Alex Vans, lead songwriter of Bad Business Club, visited El Yunque National Forest while on the Puerto Rican escape. As the United States’ only tropical forest, Vans was instantly drawn to the exoticism and lush beauty that the forest had to offer. He found himself contemplating the story about washing away an old flame from another life in another country whilst navigating the long, winding trail.
The track looks to further Bad Business Club’s penchant for daytime disco in an ethereal narration adorned with shimmery synths. Produced by Morgan Wiley of Midnight Magic, "Tired of Being Over You” is a Daft Punk-style stomper that combines Sam Behr’s powerful vocals with a dream-like narration about another life that’s become farther and farther away.
Bad Business Club is set to debut a full year's worth of smooth grooves in 2021 in the form of this summer’s Naked Neighbor album, due out August 13th. The band’s sound is best defined by combining Nu Disco with classic Yacht rock sensibilities, and rounding them out with pulsating yet polished rhythms and grooves.
About Bad Business Club:
Bad Business Club is a Nu-Disco collective with some old-school Yacht Rock touches. All Things Go said of their debut EP that it has “style that will take some back to the late 70’s, with harmonies larger than life that can bring arena shows to those humble headphones.”
Staying true to the “collective” approach, Bad Business strives to play into each individuals’ strengths. Alex Vans writes the structure of each song, purposefully leaving out specific grooves or indications to further the group’s collaborative creative method. Morgan Wiley of Midnight Magic handles production by infusing the tracks with disco influence and focusing each track on the desired texture. Sam Behr brings stellar vocal talent that helps to supercharge the melodies. Jackson Bell functions as the lead guitarist and adds structure and counter melodies to the collective’s colorful tracks, while Jim Campbell and Max Azarmehr round out the collective by dually serving as the group’s groovy backbone.
The group is primarily influenced by classic Giorgio Moroder-style Disco, and Modern Daytime disco al la Poolside and Holy Ghost!, while combining the harmonic influences of Yacht Rock. Their smooth sound transports listeners to another place, to summer breezes and early morning champagne.
They are also the hosts of the Imbibe the Vibe podcast, where they combine classic cocktails with a different music genre every month.
