On a college campus, there’s never a shortage of fresh and enthusiastic rock and roll bands. But rarely does a band come along that can match the power and intensity that comes from seasoned St. Rose hard rock quartet Bad Mothers. Blending elements of alternative, indie, and folk flavors of rock while maintaining a high decibel level and furious live performance style, Bad Mothers have spent the last two years leaving their mark on the Albany and St. Rose music scenes.
When guitarist/vocalist Matt Dalton, drummer Brian Chiappinelli, bassist Kevin Bohen, and lead guitarist Patrick Flores combine forces their songs hit hard and hold the groove, while keeping audiences fixated on their sophisticated lyrics. Staying based in Albany while some members complete their studies at St. Rose, they’ve been hitting the pavement to spread their music far and wide, playing gigs from here to New York City.
The band’s single “Venom,” featured last year’s Rose Record Label Groups Compilation and currently available for streaming, is a perfect example for curious listeners of how the band brings out a distinct blend of their influences while also highlighting the individual abilities as musicians. Dalton’s lead vocals are stirring and concise. The rhythm section creates a wall of strong yet fuzzy backbeat while soft, echoey harmonies and crisp, distorted guitars fill in the empty spots of the song’s expansive landscape.
