With seven members, you’re probably expecting a big sound from Melbourne’s LAMA. But you’re probably not expecting something as excitingly original as their new single “Wolf.”
I’ve heard this act described as a psychedelic folk band, but that’s only just scratching the surface. There’s a lot of rock in their sound, and a real theatricality that you don’t often hear in modern music. With a flute, violin, and trumpet all competing for airtime, the result is surprisingly coherent, and just downright surprising.
LAMA shows are fast becoming recognised as some of the most vivacious on the local scene. You can see the band do their thing to celebrate “Wolf’s” release at the following shows.
15 April 2016 – The B.East, Brunswick
13 May 2016 – Bar Open, Fitzroy
