“A gritty two-and-a-half minutes of wobbly bass, wailing guitar, and front woman Kerry Alexander’s slinky vocals, it is a blast—and there is more like this to come.” FADER

Psychic Reader is the debut LP from Minneapolis natives Bad Bad Hats, set for release July 17 via Afternoon Records (Yellow Ostrich, Haley Bonar). The album is comprised of experimental beats, growling guitars, and catchy pop melodies with vocals that are both dreamy and strikingly deep.

Album opener “Midway” is an undeniably infectious track that is broken up by a danceable, energetic pop chorus that tells a story of a relationship’s impending end. The trio effortlessly pivot to a grittier garage feel on “Shame,” which features an irresistible bass line, wailing guitar, and emotive vocals. The album’s namesake, “Psychic Reader,” is an epic cinematic track perfect for a warm summer drive with the windows rolled down. The beach-y “Fight Song” builds to an explosion of echoing howls, driving bass, and anthemic, empowering lyrics.

Shame” first premiered with FADER

Bad Bad Hats are Kerry Alexander (vocals, guitar, wisdom), Chris Hoge (drums, courage), and Noah Boswell (bass, power). Bolstered by experimental touches from producer Brett Bullion (Poliça, Bon Iver), the indie rock trio take a refreshingly rebellious approach with lyrics that challenge gender conventions. With Psychic Reader, the band has created an artistically honest and widely accessible work.
