Bahamas, the World Radiant

[SINGER-SONGWRITER] Afie Jurvanen hails from Toronto, but given his solo moniker (Bahamas) and the record label he’s signed to (Jack Johnson’s Brushfire Records), one would least suspect the singer-songwriter to reside anywhere north of Southern California. And considering his combination of hushed acoustic and sun-soaked electric guitars with a voice reminiscent of a smoothed M. Ward, the temptation to pigeonhole his music grows even stronger. But listening to Jurvanen’s two-album repertoire reveals a sultry and intimate air that, if given the chance, distinguishes his songs from the work of his contemporaries. There’s an underlying melancholia to Bahamas I venture to guess can be credited to its curious northern origins.
