BAMF!- ska,hardcore,pop band
BAMF! from St.Louis, Missouri could possibly be the love child of Big D and The Kids Table and maybe The Devil Wears Prada. With the sound of an energetic garage band and the sparkling personalities of high school boys on a mission this band brings a well needed dose of fun to the music industry. Listening to a couple tracks and singles every song brings a different sound. There’s songs such as “Ska Zombie” and “Dude Rocketship” that bring a refreshing mix of ska and pop music that’s easy on the ears and even easier to dance to. There’s also more hardcore tracks like “Attack of the Meat” that combine fast paced ska (trumpet blaring included) and screams comparable to The Devils Wear Prada. Even despite all this praise all in all what really sets this band apart is the young, youthful, and a bit odd energy that they spill into their music, paint onto their myspace page, and wear on their faces. Need Proof? Listen to “What I Wanna Do to You” which honestly sounds like a bunch of sexually frustrated teens and a couple of vacant acoustic guitars. This band isn’t afraid to be kids and make music just for the hell of it. They haven’t gained enough recognition thus far and some members are still in high school but i have no doubt one day this small town band will be on a warped stage coming to your town.
go buy their album in Hot Topic or on Itunes.
