Next month, the jangly Boston trio Vundabar will release their sophomore album Gawk. The latest single they’ve shared, the roaring “Oulala,” treads in pop territory, but it also traffics in the band’s signature brand of dynamic shifts. Though it kicks off with clattering drums and punchy guitar, the track’s four-and-a-half minutes are also packed with sing-song hooks, knotty instrumental lines, and a hazy coda that recalls a revved-up Real Estate track.
Stream “Oulala” below. Gawk will be out on July 24 via the band’s own Gawk Records label.
