Bio

Sometime in the summer of 2008, a young Doug Wright (recently returned from a year in far-off Switzerland) found the perfect synth on eBay. Biding his time, he planned to pounce at the right moment… Simultaneously, at a secret location, deep in the picturesque Blue Mountains, brothers Peter and Russell Fitzgibbon were watching the same synth on their computer screen, mouse-clicking fingers getting ready to spring… After losing the bidding war, Doug heard on the grapevine that the brothers had scored a sweet new Roland Alpha Juno 2 on eBay. He immediately fronted up to the Fitzgibbon house, demanding they form a band together so he could play it. “I lost a synth but won some friends,” says Doug nostalgically. United by a mutual love of sun-drenched harmonies and shimmering melodies, with a secret guilty serve of smooth grooves on the side, the trio put their minds together to bring We Say Bamboulée into being.

Really cute riff and lyrics, it's brand of textured synth-pop reminds me of old videogame soundtracks. That's not a criticism, more synth-pop should sound like old videogame soundtracks.
