Bandicoot have shared their new digital single Dark Too Long. Reclaiming for a new generation the poetry of Dylan, the stark beauty and unhinged Rock and Roll of mid-70s John Cale, and Badfinger’s melancholic timeless songcraft, this is Bandicoot. Their sound flows like post-industrial blues through Swansea’s rain-soaked concrete streets. Listen to the single via SoundCloud below.
Bandicoot have earned a ferocious reputation, thanks to their raucous, overflowing live shows that spin euphorically from post-punk and krautrock to glam stomp and art-pop sensuality at the drop of a note.
Dark Too Long is Bandicoot‘s debut single via Libertino, a song they describe as a “frenzied cry of desperation from the depths of excess and loneliness, influenced by the driving rhythms of NEU! and Can.”
“Bandicoot are wired instinctively to the cathartic screams of John Lennon’s Plastic Ono Band, the lustful danger of The Velvet Underground, and CAN’s cinematic propulsion. They are the art-house provocateurs of Warhol’s Factory brought to life on Swansea’s rainy streets” – Libertino
