Bambies - "Dirty Taint"
I first wrote about Bambies back in 2019 when the Montreal trio released "Red Guitar" -- the second-ever release on Reta Records! From the start, I was absolutely floored by this band's super fun mix of punk, pop, and high energy rock and roll. Now Sami, Franki, and Feli are back with "Dirty Taint", a new single that teases their forthcoming album Summer Soon. According to the band, the song is about "answering the call of invisible forces, internal chemistry or whatever it is that brings you to the right place, at the right time to have a perfect night". That's a vibe I can totally dig! "Dirty Taint" is the kind of song you crank up loud when you want to feel really great about being alive. It's rare to hear a band sound this poppy while still maintaining an aggressive punk rock and roll edge. But that's exactly what Bambies have pulled off here! Summer Soon is due out in August on Spaghetty Town and Wanda Records -- and somehow Bambies manage to be a perfect fit for both labels! I am so pumped for this album!
