Music Review: Vundabar

gawk

The three person band Vundabar is on tour now performing “Gawk” their most recent album, released in 2015.

Rolling and crashing drums, lilting vocals, punchy guitar and dreamy bass combine in Gawk in a way that sounds more mature and calculated than their older hits. This is all the more impressive considering their admittedly young age! These college-aged kids are relatable, and easy to root for.

The instant hit “Oulala” has helped land Vundabar features with Vice, Sound of Boston, and Spin Magazine. This four and a half minute track is accessible punk that’s treading into pop territory. If you love the Pixies, you should give Vundabar a shot. They have perfected the loud-soft-then loud again style, combining signature angry sound with mellower hooks.
