Enter the smooth groove and sultry tones of Cal Maro with Bad. Dripping with sexy soul and lo-fi funk, Bad gives off Maxwell-esque vibes. The song changes tempo just over half-way through then continues with Maro’s languorous groove and soulful sound. You feel like you’re getting two songs for the price of one and Cal Maro gets to show off all his skills in this clever project.
“It’s a strut. It’s tequila in the system. It’s the moment you’re so shook, you know things are out of your control.
But you’re past the point of nervousness or doubt; you’re feeling yourself.” – Cal Maro
Cal Maro sets the mood effortlessly with Bad. His vocals exude longing and the various textures carry a certain gravitas. You can imagine a cheeky swagger when he performs this one live.
Bad should come with a highly flammable warning – it certainly makes you want to light a few candles and pop some champagne.
The song might be called Bad, but oh boy does it make you feel good.
