Bananagun are a five piece band from Melbourne led by songwriter Nicholas Van Bakel. There’s a deeply percussive element to the band’s psychedelic ode to Mother Nature, as seen in their debut album The True Story of Bananagun, released to critical acclaim in 2020. Uncut said that “they can’t help but sound addictively cheerful”, naming it one of their albums of the year, and it topped Shindig’s best of year list. As a live outfit the band are electric and eclectic, matching the psychedelic songwriting of Electric Prunes and The Free Design with Stereolab’s fizz and pop.
