Listen to the Striking Matches’ song ‘Bad’ from ‘iZombie’, it is so pretty

Listen to the Striking Matches’ song ‘Bad‘ from iZombie

The Striking Matches song ‘Bad‘ was one of the latest songs featured on iZombie this week — Season 4, Episode 13, “And He Shall Be A Good Man”.

It was played in that lovely scene when Liv gives Clive and Dale the zombie cure as their wedding gift, and was the perfect addition with lead vocalist Sarah Zimmerman’s powerful vocals and those gorgeous guitar twangs.

And, if you loved the song but are not familiar with Striking Matches, they are an alternative pop, rock, blues duo that hail from Nashville, Tennessee. The pair, aka  Sarah Zimmermann and Justin Davis, have been together since 2007 as Striking Matches after meeting in a guitar class.

Striking Matches got their first big break in 2012 when they were discovered by the Music Supervisor of the TV show Nashville. This got them their start with their music featured on TV shows, with nine of their songs already having been used on Nashville.

In 2015, Striking Matches also won the British Country Music Association award for best International Act of the Year.

The duo’s iZombie featured song ‘Bad‘ is from their 2017 four-track EP Shameless. Listen to it in the Spotify widget below, and watch the pair perform it live at Capitol Studios in their newly uploaded YouTube video below that.
