Bad Wave “Good Son”

With “Good Son”, LA duo Bad Wave have created a new genre we’ll call ” Post Fathers Day” i.e. this is no celebration of bonding with dad but rather a synth washed lament about letting that Dad guy down. It’s plush and pop and while there is a Ben Folds vibe to the whole song it’s not remotely as self-satisfied as one of his typical tracks which is to say it’s earnest and defeated and just really damn pretty.
