Bambara’s new album Stray was announced in October ahead of a February 14th release on the always reliable Brooklyn indie Wharf Cat. The album is structured like a collection of short stories about a group of loosely-related characters living in a fictionalized Georgia community.
Beginning with lead single Serafina, and followed by Sing Me To The Street, the band have shared the third single from the album Heat Lightning. It is a driving punk song with almost western-style guitar leads undercut by ominous synth swells, frontman Reid Bateh turns the spotlight on one of the album’s lead characters, the personified figure of Death.
