The Guest Room – Bad Days: Sunny & Suave New-Soul

The Guest Room are here with a singer that carries a wonderfully sweet voice, a drummer that hits his snare drum according to the rhythm of your heartbeat, and all the other lads that I’m sure they all are superior players of their instruments. They come with their new tune called “Bad Days” to draw a smile on your face, and they’re doing so with an eclectic new-soul sound.

I’ve mentioned this already, their female lead singer’s voice is splendid. It is more like chunks of ethereal caress that she exhales with every syllable, aimed for your inner core. That surely doesn’t aim to take anything away from the rest of the band, as the songwriting excellence that they present on this song is overly satisfying, at the very least. “Bad Days” with its transitions and steady emotional flow, it’s a total must-listen for people that get down with the lounge and new-soul side of music.

Hiatus Kaiyote, Fleetwood Mac & Vulfpeck are some of their influences, according to them. I say that they are also inspired, not simply influenced, which is a big deal. Give “Bad Days” a listen here
