Los Angeles-based band Bad Suns recently shared their catchy new single “Heaven Is A Place In My Head,” produced by the band’s longtime producer Eric Palmquist.
After rewatching David Lynch’s cult classic Twin Peaks, vocalist Christo Bowman “suddenly felt the urge to write this sugary pop punk song, dressed up in leather, glitter, 80’s synthesisers and chiming guitars.” The summery sound and up tempo vibe of the song, however, were inspired by the excitement provoked at the thought of hitting the road this fall.
“The band had recently started experimenting with writing songs together over the internet,” adds Bowman on making the song. “I emailed everybody the track and we immediately began writing the lyrics and melodies on a video call. I remember falling asleep and waking up with the chorus playing over and over again in my head. I think something about the song scared us, and we tried to forget about it. We didn’t mention it for six months until our producer played us the demo and said ‘remember this?’ We all looked at each other and collectively thought ‘This is amazing, we need to record this right now’.”
Today, the band share the colourful and vibey music video for the track directed by Logan Rice.
