Reclaiming for a new generation the poetry of Dylan, the stark beauty and unhinged rock and roll of mid 70s John Cale, and Badfinger’s melancholic timeless song craft, this is Bandicoot. Their live performances spin euphorically from stomping glam rock n roll to art-pop sensuality at the drop of a note. Their sound flows like post industrial city blues through Swansea’s rain-soaked concrete streets.
Following enthusiastic support for their recent singles from the likes of 6 Music, KEXP and Radio X, Bandicoot released their debut album, ‘Black After Dark’ in March 2022 on Libertino Records, before taking their raucous, overflowing live shows to the SXSW showcase festival in Austin, Texas, and Future Echoes, Sweden.
“Bandicoot are wired instinctively to the truth telling cathartic screams of John Lennon’s Plastic Ono Band, the lustful danger of the Velvet Underground, and CAN’s cinematic propulsion. They are Warhol’s factory art-house provocateurs brought to life on Swansea’s rainy streets” - Libertino
