Bad Bad Hats

Minneapolis, MN

Bad Bad Hats is an indie rock band from Minneapolis, Minnesota. The band consists of Kerry Alexander, Chris Hoge, and Connor Davison. Named for a trouble-making character from the Madeline children's books, Bad Bad Hats is defined by a balance of sweet and sour. Their music honors classic pop songwriting, with nods to nineties rock simplicity and pop-punk frivolity. Through it all, Alexander's unflinchingly sincere lyrics cut to the emotional heart of things. 

9.0 ... The album proves to be unpredictable from track to track, adding splashes of crunchy garage-rock where others would’ve gone full-blown syrupy. Bad Bad Hats have concocted an effervescent record worthy of refill after refill.
