The Mini Lp Will Release 25th February 2022

Listen to ‘Mythic Love’ Now!

Bambara had began to gain momentum following their successful 2018 ‘Shadow On Everything’ as well as 2020’s ‘Stray, however like the rest of the world and therefore every other band out there, they were knocked out of flow by the pandemic.

Rather than rue their misfortune, the band desperately tried to turn it into a positive, immediately moving to try to make more, and – they were determined – better, music. The result is Love On My Mind – a six song mini-album, mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer – that the band are announcing today with the single “Mythic Love” which features Bria Salmena (Orville Peck/Frigs) and Drew Citron (Public Practice).

The Mini LP has not been an easy task for the band to undertake, with members of the band being left strewn across the US due to the pandemic, they remotely pieced together an EP but as soon as it was finished, they scrapped it. They said it felt “dishonest”. Having tried something new, and not liking the result, they realised they needed to change approach so at that point they decided to reconvene in New York.

With the Mini LP set for release on 25th Feb (via Wharf Cat Records), it lines up nicely for their scheduled support slots with IDLES, which will be followed by their own headline tour. The dates will see the band play 8 dates supporting IDLES across Europe, before they tour Europe on their own headline tour, finishing off with a visit to the UK, where they will play at towns and cities up and down the UK, including Manchester, London, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Glasgow to name just a few of the stops on their extensive tour.
