Kat Meoz has made a name for herself as LA’s grit-rock darling. She recently released Here I Wait, her sophomore EP that will attract fans of Joan Jett and Jack White alike. Her voice is always the center of attention, howling with a fiery passion that she cannot contain. Today she releases her newest single, a collaboration with producer Jake Bowman, who has worked with hip hop powerhouses like Snoop Dogg and Joey Bada$$. “Bad Side” is the rollicking anthem we’ve come to expect from Kat Meoz, this time featuring a distinct pop flavor that stands apart from her other work.
The track begins with just a guitar riff and percussion, while Meoz’s warbles coax us closer for the main event. Never one to be too obvious, Meoz uses a metaphor to show her growing romantic obsession, yet her poker face falls short as she caves to her feelings. As usual, her vocals are scene-stealing, especially at the end of the chorus when she wails, “What have you done?!”
