German electronic duo BUNT. deliver party-friendly dance jams that honor the spirit of the late Avicii and channel the early material of funky forebears Justice, Basement Jaxx, and Calvin Harris. Debuting in the mid-2010s, they expanded their Avicii-esque folk-house sound by incorporating horns and world music flourishes, signing with the majors in 2019.
Hailing from Stuttgart, BUNT. is Levi Wijk and Nico Crispin, high school friends who teamed up at the age of 16 to craft dance anthems inspired by Swedish House Mafia. Taking SHM's propulsive festival house approach and enriching it with folksy elements like banjos and harmonicas, they adopted a style strikingly similar to Avicii's on early tracks such as 2014's "Journey" and "Harmonica." Subsequent 2016 output "Old Guitar" and "Coming Home" sounded like Of Monsters and Men or Mumford & Sons spun with an EDM twist, while "Young Hearts" was infused with saxophone. By 2018, Celtic world music tones found their way into "On My Way" and "Little Secrets."
With nearly a dozen tracks building a wide audience by the end of the decade, the pair signed with Geffen and made their label debut with 2019's "Oh My Other." Teaming with blues band the Dip, they followed with the earthy "Sure Don't Miss You." Borrowing Buena Vista Social Club's Omara Portuondo's "Tiene Sabor," they added Latin flair to their repertoire with that summer's "Cuba (Tiene Sabor)." ~ Neil Z. Yeung
