Neo-grunge DIY act The Waking Point releases new single "Bad Girl"

DIY newcomer Sadie Bellica released "Bad Girl" earlier this month; it's the latest single from her project The Waking Point in 2020. Leaning into the grunge vibe, "Bad Girl" portrays an abusive relationship through Bellica's intense vocals and instrumentation. During the pandemic, Bellica has put out music through which she airs out her most painful experiences; you can hear the trauma in every beat of "Bad Girl", which you can listen to below. After that, take a listen to Bellica's "Rose Colored Violence", her debut release this year. - Will Sisskind
