Bahamas has announced the October 9th release of Sad Hunk (Brushfire Records). Bahamas’s sound defies genre categorization, yet it incorporates many – pop, R&B, rock, folk, soul, alternative, Caribbean, blues and more. Sad Hunk contains 11 songs that encapsulate all that legions of Bahamas fans have grown to love – great songs, insightful lyrics, infectious hooks, exceptional musicianship, distinctive arrangements and sharp wit. A prime example is captured on the brand-new song “Own Alone”, released today.
From his vocal phrasing to his songwriting to his masterful guitar work, Sad Hunk reflects a natural progression of Jurvanen’s artistry. “Trick To Happy” is a laid-back, soulful entry point, while the quirky, self-conscious “Not Cool Anymore” offers a tropical acoustic ambiance. “Done Did Me No Good” and “Up With The Jones” feature signature up-tempo Bahamas style and harmonies that legions of fans have come to love. Jurvanen’s vulnerability is on display in the touching “Less That Love”, and he opens up his heart on the tender and beautiful “Half Your Love”.
Sad Hunk is an album inspired by domestic life and embodies an undaunted self-awareness. The album title and artwork finds the Jurvanen’s self-deprecating humor out front as the result of a nickname given to him by his wife in reaction to an overdramatic photo shoot a while back that was out of character.
