City Paper is not for tourists.
Veterans of the D.C. music scene teamed up in 2016 to create the power-pop power group Bad Moves. The band’s debut album, Tell No One, drops on Friday, Sept. 21 and tells serious stories wrapped in cheery chords and shout-along-able melodies.
Washington City Podcast host Will Warren talked to guitarists David Combs and Katie Park and bassist Emma Cleveland (you’ll have to listen to their music to hear drummer Daoud Tyler-Ameen, who wasn’t available to talk at the same time as the rest of the band) about their hopes for the new album, writing songs from an adolescent perspective, and voice acting on the animated show Craig of the Creek.
