Vundabar began as a recording project between Brandon Hagen and Drew McDonald during their last year in high school together. Since then it has grown into far more. In April of 2013 they released their first album ‘Antics’ independently, which was followed up with multiple US tours and their first European tour, a two month string of shows with an emphasis on Festival dates as well as club dates. They have since returned to Europe for a second tour in the fall of 2014 and are anticipating a follow up tour in the spring of 2014. All of this being said, the three current members are only between 19 and 20 years of age. The Boston trio has been described as jangle pop and often compared to the likes of The Pixies and Thee Oh Sees for their quiet/loud dynamic and pop sensibility. They’re know for their energetic live sets, and comedic approach to the performance.
“The band has a great and expansive range of musical ability that sets them happily apart from many other up and coming indie groups – Allston Pudding
“Imagine a nonchalant cross between Weezer and the Pixies. A pair that makes girls want to promiscuously dance on the beach” – Les InRocks
“Last year’s debut record, Antics, showcased their talent for slipping a subversive edge into catchy post-punk jams” – Dig Boston
"After tonight's performance Vundabar have demonstrated that they have the energy and musical abilities to sell out much larger venues like Camden's Electric Ballroom in the not too distance future. We look forward to welcoming them back to London soon." - Acid Minus Doves
