Bambara have announced the release of a new EP, Love On My Mind, which will be out on February 25, 2022 via Wharf Cat. The band has also shared a new song from the EP titled “Mythic Love” and announced a new 2021/2022 tour which will feature dates with IDLES and Nothing. Check out the new video (directed by the band alongside Kevin Condon) below, along with the EP’s tracklist/cover art and list of tour dates.

“Mythic Love” features Bria Salmena of Orville Peck’s band and Drew Citron of Public Practice. Frontman Reid Bateh elaborates on the new song in a press release: “In ‘Mythic Love,’ we see the two protagonists of the record meet for the first time. There’s an immediate attraction that seems almost out of their control. The song is about riding that first manic wave of infatuation wherever it leads, dismantling all of your previous associations with love along the way.”

The band’s most recent album, Stray, came out last year via Wharf Cat.

Love On My Mind Tracklist:

1. Slither In The Rain
2. Mythic Love
3. Birds
4. Point and Shoot
5. Feel Like a Funeral
6. Little Wars
