BANDITO FOLK crossed grand embankments…
As dusk settles the kindred draw melancholic stares from dancehall flowers… Brisbane 5 piece band Bandito Folk started kicking around back in 2011 while students at QUT… the same uni that spawned the likes of Ball Park Music, Major Leagues, Cub Sport etc. Over time they have collected a clump of songs and… over this same time they played a bunch of shows in and around Brisbane with Dan Sultan, The Gin Club, Machine Translations, Stolen Violin (Ex-Middle East), Velociraptor, Bad//Dreems, Halfway, The Medics, Millions, Battleships, Patrick White, I A Man plus sets at the Qld Art Gallery California Up Late, Spiegeltent, Brisbane Festival and more. Their debut EP with Valve – The Embankment was recorded with Magoo out at Applewood and released late 2013. A previous EP Please, Don’t Smile at Strangers was self-released in 2012.
Early days indeed… the dust will be disturbed by the hands of these folke.
