BAD POP have grown up, and they’re kind of pissed off about it. So, this indie rock band turned to every teenager’s refuge: distortion pedals and sarcasm.
Live, frontman Chris Connelly is alternatively heartwarming and menacing, like a pissed-off Weird Al. Superstar multi-instrumentalist Catherine Hiltz weaves melodic bass lines like a punk-rock bar-brawling PJ Harvey. Drummer Aaron Klassen was raised on a steady diet of Bonham and Grohl, and plays as if the snare just said something about his mother.
“In a time when new artists are emerging left and right it’s hard to find someone that can capture every emotion of an everyday working person. Well enter The Cody Bondra Band. The young group from the bars and coffee houses of Northern Ct. They’re making their first run of East Coast dates already notching off New York and Connecticut leading up to the release of his first EP High Tide due out on iTunes next summer. They’re not flashy or glam. Just raw and straight forward. With their uplifting, inspiring lyrics and soothing tones and voice. You will hear the ups and downs of everyday life and everyday people. Already creating a following they are sure to be a voice being heard from the dorm room to the break room.
They are from the surrounding towns of Hartford Ct . Being from a blue collar area has given their music a very personal and in depth relationship to the working class. Following in the tradition of James McMurtry, and Jackson Browne. Their songs will surely strike a chord with the singer songwriter fans” – The New Hartford Plus
