Bombargo drops a vibrant splash of soul on their funky indie vibes with layers of rock and R&B infused throughout. The band brings unrivaled energy to the stage with sing-along anthems, magical harmonies, and a powerful message that combined make for one of the most passionate live shows ever! Even Virgin Records founder Sir Richard Branson was impressed, quoting: “I haven’t seen this type of energy since The Rolling Stones!”
The band’s pop single “Oxygen” saw immense radio success in the summer of 2019, charting on Canada’s Top 50 Hot AC stations.
Taylor Swift also has a soft spot for Bombargo, adding their single “Mr. No Good” to her Spotify playlist ‘Songs Taylor Loves’ alongside Ed Sheeran, Camilla Cabello, and Kendrick Lamar. Being part of this star-studded playlist saw Bombargo featured on CBC’s the Q, NME, Exclaim, Fashion, Noisey, People, Billboard and more – leading to their follow up single “All the Same” which reached #1 on Spotify’s Indie All-Star playlist.
From headlining festivals to opening for legendary acts like John Butler Trio, Michael Franti & Spearhead, The Dead South, and Joel Plaskett; Bombargo has rapidly made a name for themselves globally with their life-changing live performances, captivating music, and The GoodTime Guarantee. Just ask lead singer Nathan Thoen – “A lot of bands try to promise you a good time, but we actually guarantee it.”
The Canadian-based band will be heading to the United States for the first time in Fall 2019 for a tour through the Western region of the country. Bombargo is currently writing and recording their second full-length record while shooting an autobiographical film set to coincide with the release.
