Bahamas - Caught Me Thinking

Here is a new artist who has unjustly slipped through the cracks this past year. His name is Afie Jurvanen and he goes by the moniker Bahamas. This is one of our personal favorite tracks Caught Me Thinking. At first listen, this song sounds as if it could be an unreleased track from Vampire Weekend’s most recent album, Modern Vampires of the City, but if you listen a little closer, you come to realize some obvious differences. Instead of three part band, Alfie plays every instrument himself and even comes in for the vocal ensemble. He actually isn’t from the Bahamas. He’s a Finnish-Canadian from Barrie, which is a working class town in rural Ontario. He uses his musical abilities to transport himself from the snowy terrain of Canada, to the tropical paradise of the Bahamas. After all, that’s what music is all about. It’s suppose to take us to the places we want to be and make us feel the way we want to feel. So take a minute out of your day, hit play and enjoy the warm ocean breezes of Bahamas, Caught Me Thinking.. (Especially our friends in sub-zero temperatures!)
