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.
