Melbourne based grunge-rock band Gamjee have released their single ‘William H. Vanderbilt’s Vampire’ and it’s put them on the radar as an up and coming force in the industry. A creepy yet powerful tune, excitement and eeriness hits the listener with the song’s screeching guitar and wailing vocals. It’s clear the band members, consisting of siblings and childhood friends who have played together since they were kids, lose themselves in the all-engrossing tunes they create together.
Explaining the tune, vocalist Sam Harding explains, “’William H. Vanderbilt’s Vampire’ looks at power imbalance, and the ridiculousness of the song reflects the insanity of an oligarch preying on those who have nothing material to offer.”
Gamjee aren’t a band that stick to musical blandness, with a self-made instrumental invention, the Kazoogelhorn, making appearances throughout their live shows and features across their music. The band’s members have crafted a sound that captures the best parts of 20th century psychedelic and garage rock music, yet building on their own tongue in cheek writing abilities. With an atmosphere and maturity that surpasses their experience, Gamjee are going places.
