Quick thoughts: “It’s nice to feel happy all the time,” Wilby sings repeatedly throughout her debut single, Bad. The feel-good, indie-rock track allows her refreshing voice and uplifting lyrics to shine through. This track can be enjoyed in a wide range of settings, but it really gives off summer driving, windows-down vibes. No matter the weather, however, this track is sure to be a playlist staple moving forward.
As far as debut singles go, Bad is an incredible beginning for Wilby. The Nashville-based singer should become a main attraction of the city’s live music scene as soon as concerts open up again post-COVID, and I may just have to make a trip south to catch a show. Stream Bad on Spotify, and make sure to keep an eye out for Wilby’s next release, as well.
