If it was never new and never old, then it is a folk song”. It was in this context that Badlands was born, a project that, as the old adage has it, is old and new at the same time. Old because their music comes from the deepest country and bluegrass roots; new because they are a young band that has only been going since May 2014. Since then, the quintet from Valencia has already made a name for itself in the region thanks to that old, raw and stimulating sound that they produce, leading them to win competitions and to play at some festivals. In mid 2015 they released “Prodigy”, their debut EP, followed by “Relentless” just a few months later: violins, basses, American soundscapes and a handful of songs that are both old and new.
