Shady Nasty play an energetic and weirdo breed of punk that skirts the boundaries of the genre. With backgrounds in jazz and classical music, Shady Nasty subvert expectations. As Watson explains, “We have all had musical training. Haydn, Kev and I have been playing our instruments for a long time and played in jazz bands and shit like that. The problem with all of that music for me, though, is that it has no cultural resonance. As much as I like jazz, it doesn’t describe my life." What, then, might describe Shady Nasty's lives?
Modding cars. Chinese heritage. Making ends meet. Bad Posture explores these themes with a snarling, swaggering confidence, tackling the expectations placed on them by immigrant parents, revelling in the liberation of rebellion, all while facing mental health and addiction head on whilst railing against a city slowly being crushed by big business.
