Listen to BAMBARA's New Single, "Nail Polish"

By Noisey Staff


It's easy to mimic old influences; it's something else entirely to call on them in creating a sound that's progressive and completely new. Athens natives (who currently call Brooklyn "home") BAMBARA's second single "Nail Polish" is an incredible blend of influences like Swans, early Nick Cave, and even Jesus Lizard into something that is truly their own. Beginning with a haunting drone to set the tone, an abrasive, distorted bass line eloquently drives the listener through ambient swirls, powerful punk breakdowns, and back again.

BAMBARA's full length, DREAMVIOLENCE, is due out digitally April 30th and on vinyl later this summer thanks to Arrowhawk Records. Check the stream below and be sure to pre-order the vinyl here
