The Emma Garell band have returned to the scene with their latest single/video “Bad Intentions”. Taking time during this pandemic afforded the band a gift of songwriting, recording, and producing their sound, honing in closer yet to who they are clearly defining to be. “Bad Intentions” brings the sultry pop vibes to the sensual rock mode – a marriage that subsequently embodies the lead vocalist, Emma Garell. Undeniably Emma is a talent that knows no limits in her vocal abilities and stage presence. Embracing the likes of Jim Morrison on stage in appeal to the vocals of Lana del Rey and at times Emmy Lou Harris as Emma can flip through the Blues, Rock, Metal, Classic Rock, Indie, Americana, Folk, Pop with ease… like a gentle butterfly kissing each note as she takes command. Along with her band and album due out this year, the road to playing live and writing more music is wide-open.
“Bad Intentions,” the sound this song encapsulates is like an amalgamation of light Bloc Party (definitely Silent Alarm era), Paramore, Garbage, and a dash of some classic rock influence thrown in mostly on the solos…like maybe some Blue Oyster Cult type beat. There’s definitely 70’s hard rock flair on the song overall. But those other sounds kind of rest in my ears. It has the catchy, dancey, memorable nature you’d hear from hits by Bloc Party and Paramore, hell even Garbage. But, it also has that musician-friendly obscurity and finesse to it that still makes it stick out and simultaneously give reminiscence to the “old school rock n roll” types.” –Dylan Lawson, guitarist
