Formed in the summer of 2012 in Adelaide, South Australia, Bad//Dreems play a rough-and-tumble sort of jangle rock that has roots in the Australian underground rock scene of the '70s and '80s (Paul Kelly, the Saints) as well as in American punk and college rock (the Replacements, Wipers). Led by singer/guitarist Ben Marwe along with guitarist Alex Cameron, bassist James Bartold, and drummer Miles Wilson, the group released its first single, "Chills," in late 2012. Their ramshackle yet heartfelt sound resonated with the often maligned image of their city as they mixed raw pub rock with loosely downtrodden indie. They recorded four more songs in early 2013 that, combined with their two singles, formed their debut EP Badlands. ~ Timothy Monger
