PUBLISHER’S PICK OF THE WEEK (By Adam Waldman)

BADFLOWER – “30”

If there is one thing that stands out most about Badflower, it’s the fact that they march to the beat of their own drum. Though they get plenty of spins on Active Rock radio, it’s not because they tailor their sound to the format. Quite the contrary! If anything, Badflower has blazed their own trail through virgin territory to carve out a niche that they solely occupy.

The view from the age of 30 is vastly different depending on your vantage point. In your early years, 30 feels like a lifetime away. As you span the decades, and 30 gets farther away in the rear view mirror, the realization of that particular milestone seems somewhat inconsequential. But in the moment, turning 30 is a pivotal point in time where you become almost instinctually reflective about your life. No longer are the carefree days of your youth on your side, but most adults still seem much older.

Badflower frontman, Josh Katz, captures the angst that comes with being at an age that can feel like an uncomfortable crossroads of youth and adulthood. One verse in particular poignantly represents this confusing feeling…

“I’m older, I’ve got wrinkles…I still complain, I get pimples…I miss when everything was simple.”

There’s a refreshing grungy, punk edge to “30” at times that would make you think that the band was British if you didn’t know any better.

Speaking as someone who vividly remembers this milestone, I can say unequivocally that there is some hyperbolic poetic license taken to drive home the libido issue addressed. If this part of the song was not vastly exaggerated for emphasis, there will literally be no time (or energy left) for Katz to write and record songs like this.
