About this item
Bambara are a Brooklyn based dark, noise / punk band with a Western slant. The trio consisting of twin brothers Reid (vocals / guitar) and Blaze Bateh (drums) and childhood friend William Brookshire (bass) formed in Athens, GA, deriving their name from a character in the cartoon ‘Aeon Flux’. They moved to a basement apartment in Brooklyn where they recorded their ambitious debut album ‘Dreamviolence’ (2013), their sprawling noise-collage EP ‘Night Chimes’ (2014) and their snarly, apocalyptic sophomore album ‘Swarm’ (2016) to much acclaim.
Although Reid plays all the guitar on their records, Bambara recently added two guitarists to their live shows, allowing Reid to sneer and stagger around the stage as he sings unhindered by instruments.
