BAD MOON BORN
Sydney Alt-Rockers Release Energetic Rendition Of ‘It’s Gonna Be Me’ By NSYNC
Sydney alt-rockers Bad Moon Born are back with a high energy rendition of NSYNC’s 2000 smash hit, ‘It’s Gonna Be Me’. This will be the band’s first cover since their 2020 release of ‘Bad Guy’(Billie Eilish), which has currently amassed over 100,000 Spotify streams.
True to their signature sound, this rendition is brimming with high octane riffage, exhilarating solos, vibrant synths and face melting breakdowns bolstered by a driving rhythm section. Vocalist Jordan Von Grae displays incredible dynamism with a tasteful interplay between cleans, gutturals and choral arrangements sure to satiate any heavy music lover’s appetite. With an official music video to follow soon, this hot new offering warrants repeat listens and is bound to revive the original track with a healthy jolt of rock’n’roll.
‘The lyrical themes and tones in The Heart From the Hollow Series were very personal, and it was quite a confronting experience exploring those topics creatively.’ Vocalist Jordan von Grae shares ‘When we sat down to plan our next moves, we decided that releasing a new cover single would be the perfect way to cleanse the palette ahead of inviting people into the world of our debut album. We tried a few things, and after some convincing, Voya agreed to have a crack at covering *NSYNC. We ended up having so much fun arranging the track, and learning so much from the chordal and melody arrangements that we decided to go full throttle with it. It’s been great getting back into the studio together, and we’re really looking forward to hearing what people think about this release.’
At the height of the global pandemic, Bad Moon Born released five consecutive singles collectively known as The Heart From the Hollow Series. This body of work displayed to the world what the group is truly capable of, garnering both national and international recognition from music fans and critics alike – landing the group on multiple editorial playlists such as ‘Homegrown & Heavy’ and features on Triple M, Triple J, Maniacs, Music Feeds, Heavy Mag, Moshville Time & more. Bad Moon Born concluded 2021 by signing to Destroy All Lines, and cracked open 2022 with a live acoustic performance for Rolling Stones’ ‘In My Room’ series.
Having established themselves as one of Australia’s premier alt-rock acts, the group has landed consistent national tour support slots performing alonside heavyweights such as Skid Row, Buckcherry, Hardcore Superstar, Pop Evil and countless others. Pushing their creative horizons with ‘It’s Gonna Be Me’ which is supported by their June ‘It’s Gonna Be An East Coast Tour’, Bad Moon Born prove their open mindedness to explore unconventional avenues and a ravenous hunger to not accept anything that falls short of their vision. With a debut album on the horizon and a year jam packed with shows, Bad Moon Born are ready to take over the heavy music realm within Australia & beyond.
