For Bahamas, it’s all in a name. The solo recording and performing project of Afie Jurvanen specializes in breezy trop-rock, and new song “Caught Me Thinkin’” is no different. Composed while Jurvanen played piano and guitar for Feist on tour, the track’s gently plucked chords and wa-wa pedals live up to the ”retro dance vibe” description of his forthcoming sophomore LP, Barchord. Stream “Caught Me Thinkin’” at MTV Hive, and check out the video of Bahamas covering Wreckless Eric’s “Whole Wide World” below.
Barchords is out February 7 on Brushfire Records.
