|“…some of the most undeniable songs in modern ska-punk. They don’t shy away from big power pop hooks and almost any of their songs sound like they could’ve been hits in the ’90s, but they’re never overly polished or overly retro. Bite Me Bambi just have that intangible special something where — once you click play — it doesn’t really matter who they might sound like or how they compare to other bands or anything else. The songs are just undeniable.”- BROOKLYNVEGAN|
|About Bite Me Bambi:|
Bite Me Bambi brings sounds reminiscent of British 2 Tone and 3rd wave ska into the 21st century. With energetic songs and masterful musicianship, BMB gets the crowd on their feet and dancing. Comprised of members from some of your favorite ska bands (My Superhero, Save Ferris, Starpool), this new group breathes fresh life to a genre that may have originated in Jamaica and honed in Britain, but was perfected in the haze, blight, glamour, and beauty of Southern California.
