Bambara is a post-punk band from Brooklyn, New York. The band consists of Reid Bateh (vocals, guitar), Blaze Bateh (drums, vocals), and William Brookshire (bass, vocals). Their use of machines, loops and other assorted lo-fi software aided in them also being labeled as noise rock.
After signing onto Arrowhawk Records in 2013, the band released their full-length album Dreamviolence and later Swarm in 2016, which saw a turn for the band as they began to strip away their noisy elements in return for more traditional songwriting. In 2018, the band released the album Shadow on Everything to positive critical reception. In 2020, the band released the album Stray, which received critical acclaim.
