"Bluff" from Babaganouj
With that preliminary business out of the way, I'd like to introduce you to a very promising guitar pop band from Brisbane, Australia. They call themselves Babaganouj, and consist of two men and two women. Their sound includes twee elements of classic C86 pop and a good measure of '90s fuzz, but I hear a bit more sunshine from this band. They previously have released an EP and a two-track 7", both of which are available to stream at the Bandcamp link below. This is a convenient time to check out Babaganouj because they have just released "Bluff". The song builds in a very satisfying fashion, and you may well agree with me that a lament about unrequited love never sounded quite this good before.
