Bahamas explores the space between soft and loud
Under the name Bahamas, Canadian singer-songwriter Afie Jurvanen has released two albums of graceful pop songs that glow with hints of classic country, doo-wop, ’60s soul, and just a touch of twangy guitar. His voice will remind some of the dusky, cracked croon of M. Ward. His latest release, “Barchords,” found Jurvanen exploring the power of dynamics, specifically the relationship between soft and loud. Bahamas comes to T.T. the Bear’s on Sept. 17.
