Al Bairre. Yes, it sounds like Al Bear. They hail from Cape Town, South Africa and pack an energetic punch. Their fast tempo reminds me of Vampire Weekend, but even more vibrant. Consisting of a couple of dudes and a pair of twins, they bring a full-bodied, unique style that stands on its own. Violin, keys, percussion, ukulele, bass, guitar and more, all paired with spunky lyrics keep the feet tapping and body swaying. I get hyped just thinking about their new album. Actually listening to it is next-level gnarly. Their new album “Experience the Al Bairre Show with Al Bairre Experience” is loaded w/ all sorts of rhythmic goodies that will be sure to keep the juices flowing.
