CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND - EXCLUSIVE:BAD VEINS TURN THE MUPPETS’ “RAINBOW CONNECTION” INTO LUSH INDIE BALLAD.

Listen here

Bad Veins remade the classic Muppets ballad "Rainbow Connection" entirely. Sweeping and anthemic in nature, the song has been reborn as a lush orchestral number, with Davis laying down a satiny croon (albeit through his trademark megaphone) over a sea of angelic strings and light percussion. What remains, though, is the unshakable heart and endless positivity of the original.

“This is the kind of song that I long to write myself,” Davis explains. “It’s magical and grandiose, but still humble and hopeful. It’s about admitting uncertainly and asking questions (that are likely to never be answered). In a world drowning in contrivances, it feels like a breath of fresh air to hear something earnest and pure. There is strength in vulnerability and comfort in uncertainty. It’s okay to feel small. It’s a perfect example of how music begins where language ends.”
