Best New Band

Taking cues from bands such as Built to Spill and Pinback, Bundy temper their dark lyrical content with melodic breaks and pop-forward arrangements, letting audiences come up for air once in a while as they bob their heads to a dancey four-on-the-floor beat. On songs such as this year’s “Holy Vultures,” singer/guitarist Nani Serna’s floating guitar and David Byrne-reminiscent vocals nestle well with the rhythms of bassist Kelsey Hoover, drummer Derek Cookmeyer’s sturdy pulse and guitarist Johnny Lim’s vibrant energy. With an impressive showing at this year’s Buskerfest, we see big things for this killer band (just don’t hold their name against them).
