Canadian Garage Punks, Bambies, Long Awaited Debut Album Is Out Now
“Melodic summer pop collides with grittier rock ‘n’ roll and punk rock attitude and agitation on each catchy track” -The Big Takeover
Bambies are a trio hailing from Montreal, Quebec in Canada. They are a trilingual, tri-national (Canada,France, Costa Rica) band of miscreants that has been crafting a flavor of punk rock with a rawness that is straight out of the garage. Their music is gritty yet poppy, mischievous but charming, infectious, danceable, and above all, fun. The alchemy behind Bambies’ sound starts with a base inspiration of 70s punk and ramones-core, throw in a good dose of power-pop with the sunny side up , liberally season with handfuls of garage rock , sprinkle with rock and roll guitar licks, finally top off with a swirl of surf music .
Bambies began when Sami (guitar, main vox) answered Feli’s (Bass, backing vox) craigslist ad looking to start a band. They practiced off of a handful of home demos recorded by Sami, playing a doo-wop inspired, fuzzed-out, garage rock. In mid- 2015 Franki (drums, backing vox) joined the boys. He brought speed and a demoniacal cadence to Sami’s catchy melodies. Sewn together by Feli’s guttural bass sound, they dialed up the punk and added more pop into the fire.
After honing their style, they self-released a cassette that brought them to the attention of Jamie from the Pale Lips, who released their first 7″ Red Guitar on her label Reta Records in the fall of 2019. After that, they traveled to Mexico City to record their first full-length album with Diego Mier from the psychedelic band Build a Vista. The global pandemic put a pause on their plans for dominating the airwaves. However, they are proud to finally bring you Summer Soon, out via Spaghetty Town Records in the US and Wanda Records in Europe. Also available on all major streaming and download outlets.
