Charlotte-based artist Tim Buds has returned with a fresh new single called “BATS”, which finds him at new heights as a songwriter, blending influences from indie, rock, punk, and more. The track has a distinct 80’s feel, harkening back to new wave and punk from that era but with a refreshingly modern twist. On “BATS”, Buds continues his run of character-rich offerings, as he presents a track that cannot simply be boxed into one category or sound. A guitar-driven, fast-paced track that is rich in sound, “BATS” makes for a catchy and dynamic listen. One of the track’s strengths lies in the vocal melodies, which are sharply-crafted and addictive, particularly in the chorus. The song finds Buds delivering versatile vocal styles, with smoother verses delivered in a lighter fashion, before the cathartic, harder hitting chorus. A strong track overall, “BATS” makes for an intriguing genre-bending offering and has us excited for what he has in the vault.
