Starting off with handclaps and a catchy riff, "Bad Law" sounds at first like the feelgood dance track of the fall, but a hard listen to the verses tells another story. Norwegian singer-songwriter Sondre Lerche's new album Please chronicles his recent divorce, which he addresses with a multi-layered approach. "Bad Law" in particular pairs upbeat disco vibes with some beautiful moments of distortion, making this a perfect anthem for venting frustration and blowing off steam, all while dancing the entire time.
