Adelaide’s Bad//Dreems perform for the latest edition of Rolling Stone’s ‘In My Room’,Session presented in partnership with the folks at Green Beacon Beers.

Bad//Dreems have served up a handful of intimate tracks, with the South Aussie outfit performing from the beachside suburb of Grange for the latest edition of Rolling Stone’s ‘In My Room’, a series in which artists perform from home while in quarantine. Presented by Green Beacon, the second episode in this special weekly series sees frontman Ben Marwe and guitarist Ali Wells joined by Dan Appleby (formerly of Archers) on bass and Hugh Black (Neighbours, and formerly of Archers and West Thebarton) on drums as they sit in for the group’s other members, who are Isolating currently over in Victoria

Bad//Dreems are just the latest in a line-up of massive artists set to appear on Rolling Stone’s ‘In My Room’ series. With Cub Sport kicking off the series last week, special performances from Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever and Lime Cordiale set to follow thanks to a partnership with Green Beacon. “Green Beacon loves music and proudly supports Aussie artists,” the Queensland brewery explained. “We’re thrilled to be able to take this to the next level by teaming up with Rolling Stone Australia.

Kicking things off with the debut live performance of “Cannonball” from 2019’s Doomsday Ballet, the group showcase the talent that has seen them become one of Australia’s most beloved rock bands.

“I like playing that song; it’s a favourite of mine,” Marwe admits following the performance of their recent album track. “But I didn’t know the chords of ‘Cannonball’, because the last time we played it was in the studio.”

Powering into a slick version of “Chills” from their 2013 EP Badlands, the quartet wrap up their three-song performance with a powerful rendition of The Boys Next Door’s “Shivers”, making the Rowland S. Howard-penned classic their own.

“I can’t see us really us going overseas or anything,” Marwe says of the band’s immediate future as a live band. “It’s going to be interesting, I think the goal would be to travel as much regionally as we can, and do as many regional shows as we can. It’ll be good, it might create a really healthy Australian music scene – not that there wasn’t one already.”

Bad//Dreems recently returned to our ears with the release of their latest single, “Desert Television”, which was recorded before their UK tour was sadly cut short. There’s currently no word as to when they’ll release more music, or when their cancelled regional tour of Australia will be rescheduled, but there’s no denying their status as one of Australian rock’s finest.
