What is it with exclamation points that instantly draw me to a band? Los Campesinos!, I’m looking at you.
It probably has something to do with the fact that if you punctuate your band with an exclamation, it’s a hint that you’re a band that doesn’t take yourself too seriously. Which, in a world of very, very serious indie music, is absolutely perfect sometimes.
Today, I’m talking about The Go! Team, a Brighton-based band* that’s been putting out high energy songs (and even higher energy live shows) for the past few years. They recently performed at Brooklyn Bowl, and Baeblemusic was there to catch it on film.
Below, watch The Go! Team perform “Buy Nothing Day” off their most recent album, Rolling Blackouts, then head over to Baeblemusic to catch the rest of the show. It’s the perfect Friday soundtrack to keep you smiling until the weekend.
*Try saying that 5 times fast. Now try this one: “Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.” Good job.
