Armed with an acoustic guitar, some drum loops and a Greyhound bus pass, Bad Flirt
was once just a touring solo project for singer/songwriter Jasamine White Gluz.
After diving into the Montreal scene in 2002, a then small but vibrant community, Jasamine decided to expand Bad Flirt into a full group by enlisting various musicians she met on her travels. They then began an intense North American touring schedule that included shows with Paramore
, The Kills
. It was at this time that the Canadian outfit caught the attention of Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen
, who deemed Bad Flirt as their new favorite band.
Bad Flirt showcases their high-energy pop rock on Virgin Talk
, produced by Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire
, Wolf Parade
) which was released last year through Kartel/Universal Music in Canada and is available now on iTunes
in the US. The critical acclaim for the album led to such opportunities as a headlining spot in Toronto's Virgin Fest alongside MGMT
and Foo Fighters
