We’re massive music lovers in the Bad Monday office and always have a playlist on the go, sometimes we’re singing along to Miley Cyrus and other times we’re taking it old school with some Metallica – there’s no judgement either way. We also love discovering new bands, DJs, artists etc and have been lucky to have some awesome ones as our customers along the way.
We decided July would be the perfect month to discover some new music and celebrate some of our talented customers, so we launched the Bad Monday Battle of The Bands! We asked our social media following to send in a video clip of them performing (this could include bands, DJ’s, singers, trumpet players you name it). Once we received all entries, we had a pretty damn good day listening to them all, regretfully we could only pick 8 to take through to the next round!
Our favourite 8 battled it out head-to-head on our Instagram stories, with our followers voting for their fav to make the next round. It was a close call for all the battles as the competition was so tough (you are a talented bunch). But the eventual winner was declared as Distance Between Us, these guys are a Communal Metal Covers Project band who formed over Lockdown (remotely!). You can check them out via their Facebook page here or head over to their Instagram.
