Download of the Week: The Bamboos

posted in: FeaturesUrban

With a throwback sound set to make its way back into prime-time, self proclaimed, “Masters of deep funk and super-heavy soul,” The Bamboos are making waves in the Australian music scene.  This past March, the group’s 4th album, aptly titled 4, hit Number 1 in the Australian iTunes Soul/R&B Album chart immediately upon it’s release.  The group already has quite the placement history, with songs featured in shows such as Grey’s Anatomy and Ugly Betty as well as a Nintendo Wii game.  Formed in 2001, the group has performed as a backing band for big names such as Betty Harris, drawing links between hip hop, funk and soul music.

This week, The Bamboos are giving away their single “Like Tears in Rain” as our Download of the Week feature for Needle in the Haystack. Stay tuned from more from them throughout the week!
