we say bamboulee
Blue Mountains-based trio We Say Bamboulée make a cheerful brand of noise-pop, which weaves folk-inspired harmonies through waves of synthesisers and energetic beats.
Interview: 25 November 2010
Tell us about your music – how did you develop your sound?
Doug was living in a small alpine village in Switzerland a couple of years ago, and started producing songs in his host family's basement. Once back in Sydney, we got together under the guise of We Say Bamboulee and started jamming the songs on synths and drums. So I guess we use the tools of electronic musicians, but play them like we're a guitar band or something. BOOM. sound developed.
What can the Big day Out audience expect at your show?
Actually, there's a real treat planned for anyone that comes out to see us! We're hoping to get the members of Tool and Rammstein up to sing harmonies. People will freak right out.
Who are you looking most forward to seeing at the Big Day Out?
Lupe Fiasco and Ratatat.
What’s coming up in the future?
Well, we just put out an EP called BUSH TRICKS so we're hoping to be getting around Australia in the new year to support it. We are also planning on canoeing down the Colo river at some stage, we're figuring out the logistics of where it fits in the schedule. Apart from that, we'll just be keeping cool over summer, writing more songs and maybe releasing more tracks in 2011.
Australian music is?
Snakes in your synths, barramundi in your bass, goannas in your guitars, dingoes at your drums.
