DIY-ers in the truest sense, Toronto-based punk-rockers Bad Buzz formed as many great bands do; via Down To Jam. The four piece consisting of Andrew Laurie, Tristan Loria, Troy Fullerton and Ross Carvelli recorded their debut EP earlier this year in just two days recording, mixing and mastering the whole dang thing themselves.
Today, we’re featuring Bad Buzz and their standout single, the rebel rousing “Look Away.” The hard-charging track showcases the band’s cumulative power via each individual’s prowess as the seemingly straightforward pop-garage rocker is buoyed by deceptively complex instrumentations.
To help get to know Bad Buzz a little better we sent them the SIMGE Survey. Read their responses while streaming “Look Away” below.
