One year after Stray, Brooklyn based band Bambara (Reid Bateh, Blaze Bateh, William Brookshire) have announced the release of a new album called Love On My Mind which will be out on February 25th, 2022 via Wharf Cat Records. We already shared “Mythic Love“; “Birds” is a new excerpt.
“‘Birds’ compresses the events of many months into three and a half minutes, spanning time when the couple we follow throughout the record are growing closer,” explains singer and lyricist Reid Bateh. “On the train, they fall in and out of sleep, reliving shared moments. Then a childhood memory bubbles up to the surface of the protagonist’s mind, revealing his complex relationship to the idea of love.”
