Badflower’s highly anticipated debut album, OK, I’m Sick, is set for release this Friday, February 22nd. The album features the hit song, “Ghost”, whose music video has over 7 million views. The album is sure to be a hit flowing from hard rock to melodic sounds throughout.
“Ana” opens the album with high energy and mix of spoken words and singing. The explanation of the album title is slightly mentioned in the heart of the song introducing the album as a whole. “The Jester” follows providing strong guitar riffs that transition into the hard rock chorus of the song.
Next up from Badflower is their hit single, “Ghost”, and is there for listeners to enjoy something they’ve already grown to love. The powerful message of the song is brought to life through its lyrics.
Following is “We’re In Love”, which adds another haunting sound to the album. The recently released “Promise Me” is a personal favorite presenting a true classic rock vibe with a touch of modern rock. Shifting gears, vocal standouts and dark lyrics are present in “Daddy”. “24” is in the same haunting category with an emotional sound while fans may recognize “Heroin” adding another hit to the album.
Badflower turns up the amount of hard rock on “Die” and “Murder Games” with both songs offering political lyrics and standpoints. Transitioning to a groovy, again spoken word, vibe on “Girlfriend” to a great chorus and Shinedown comparison with “Wide Eyes”. “Cry” closes out the album in a very soft way with strong instrumentals.
OK, I’m Sick fits in perfectly in today’s rock scene. From start to finish, the album takes you on an emotional ride jumping from hit to hit. The strong percussion presence partnered with hard guitar sounds place them at the top of the game. I am confident you’ll be hearing their name in the future of rock music.
