Italian four-piece Barmudas take their band’s name from the unknown Barmuda district in Florence’s old town, the last bastion against the invasion of zombie-tourists, hipsters, indie posers, baristas, cover bands, fashion influencers and snob-intellectuals, a place where outsiders with poor taste in look, music and artistic stuff rule. In short, the perfect environment for a dirty glittered shiny cheap mixture of raucous rock ‘n’ roll, and that’s exactly what Smendock (voals), Luca Nacker (bass), King-Dom guitar), and Zak (drums) play. They just released their full-length debut album Every Day is Saturday Night, and the expectations raised by the cover art are satisfied by the music. This is crazee glam rock for those who like Pink Boots & Lipstick, ten energetic party tunes to stomp on (Rock the Barmudas!) and shout along (Shake A Shaker!). Stream the full album below. Highly recommended for fans of Giuda, Sam Coffey And The Iron Lungs, New Swears (or for the older readers: Slade, New York Dolls, Sweet). The speakers just blew up at Add To Wantlist HQ, be warned.
Every Day is Saturday Night is out now digitally and on vinyl LP through Area Pirata Records.
