Athens, Georgia trio Bambara are a noisy band, which we mean as a compliment. They conjure up a nice line in rhythmic aggression with ethereal walls of sound, delay loops, feedback and distortion. Crucially however, at the heart of each track there is a nice little pop song beaten and buried.
Tomorrow they release their new EP Dog Ear Days via Emerald Weapon, and we have a taster for you in the form of Stay Gray. In parts ambient, in parts shoegaze and with a nice flourish of post-rock psychedelia the band somehow manage to come up with something that is fresh and interesting. Enjoy.
