What’s up Warriors and today I’m going to be looking at Bad Business’s new single called Cadillac Villa.
So before we begin let’s discuss who Bad Business is.
Bad Business is an NYC-based, late 70s throwback band with some modern nu-disco touches thrown in for smooth measure. The group is primarily influenced by soft rock staples like Steely Dan and The Doobie Brothers. Their smooth sound transports listeners to another place, to summer breezes and early morning champagne. And at the end of the day, they’re not trying to be cool. They’re just trying to have a good time.

“This is the music your Mom and Dad partied to, back when they were still single.”
So from listening to this I definitely got the 70’s-80’s vibe from the song and it took me back to playing GTA Vice City which is a plus, the intro to the song is good and reminds me of Luther Vandross – Never Too Much (Which made me think of Vice City)
The chorus is very powerful with the vocals done by Fantine which makes the chorus stand out more to the rest of the song but still very good as I’m liking the use of many instruments as it gives you a lot to process when listening to this song.
The Harmonies in this song are on parr as well they work really well and the voices work together as well.
And the Synth solo made hit me with that 80’s Nostalgia and I wasn’t even born in the eighties!.
After listening to this song about 5 times I had to check out their other songs to see what they were like and they are really good and like the bio said they are making songs to have fun and not be cool. Well, your cool in my eyes.
Out of Five?
This music is a nice change to what we usually get in the music industry today and it’s a weird and nice feeling at the same time to have the Nosaligia feeling hit you even though this is a brand new band not from the ’70s or ’80s and it’s nice to see a band do something they enjoy and not worry about making people happy.
I really enjoyed listening to this and Bad Business will be going into my Mix Playlist!
4/5 Stars for this Retro Classic Vibe in the 2000s
