The Soul Of Classic Rock Returns In Eddie & The Wolves “Bad Touch”
Classic Rock fans may have a hard time finding modern music that captures the epic and full sound of bands such as Led Zeppelin or even Fleetwood Mac, but “Bad Touch” by Eddie & The Wolves manages to do a spectacular job pulling it off. The overall production, such as the effects added to Eddie’s vocals at specific points, however, brings a modern twist that keeps it from sounding dated.
“Bad Touch” already starts off strong with a hard rock sound full of heavy drum beats and catchy guitar riffs (and there are plenty more to be found throughout the song). The song builds further by introducing catchy guitar riffs and the gritty vocals of the lead singer Eddie, which sound like a mixture of Stevie Ray Vaughn and Steven Tyler’s voices. After the first chorus, Char’s soulful and raspy vocals are at the forefront, adding a new dynamic to the track and bringing out the bluesy undertone present throughout the song.

Hailing from Derby in Derbyshire, England, Eddie & The Wolves started releasing music in 2018 with the single “Love in the City,” followed by “She Knows What She’s Got” the same year. After dropping more singles such as “After Dark,” “Love Me/Show Me,” and “Running Wild” in 2019, the band dropped their debut album, War, in 2021.
Listen to War below:
One of the stand-out tracks from War includes the single “Nine Lives.” While it isn’t as much of a hard rock track as “Bad Touch,” it encompasses the bluesy sound of the band and is still a fun song for any rock fan. Another interesting track off the album is the title track, showcasing Eddie & The Wolve’s range of musical abilities. “War” starts off slower, with a light percussion line and snaps, lending to the listener’s focus solely on Eddie’s vocals as it builds up to the climax in the chorus.
