Auckland's Bad Timing Drop Scathing Single '100% Pure' + Video

Tuesday 5th March, 2019 1:25PM

Auckland four-piece Bad Timing (featuring members of Miss June, The Miltones, The Protection, Whaea & The Rumble) have unveiled their scathing second single ‘100% Pure’. The environmentally-focussed song begins as a jazz-inflected sonic journey with such lamenting lines such as “Papatūānuku... what have we done to you?”, eventually building to a heavy doom metal crescendo featuring a truth-bomb chorus of "100% Pure is bullshit". The powerful tune is accompanied by a reflective and piercing video filmed and edited by singer / bassist  Siobhan Leilani – read the band's insights into the ideas behind '100% Pure' and experience their clip below... 

“NZ is marketed as an environmental haven, with an international tourism slogan claiming we're '100% Pure'. This is a very untrue representation of our country, where we have lost 70% of our native forests, at least 60% of our waterways are deemed unsafe to swim in, and introduced pests threaten our native animals with extinction. In other words, '100% Pure' is bullshit and we're here to tell you that.”
