Reclaiming for a new generation the poetry of Dylan, the stark beauty and unhinged Rock and Roll of mid-70s John Cale, and Badfinger's melancholic timeless songcraft, this is Bandicoot. Their sound flows like post-industrial blues through Swansea's rain-soaked concrete streets.

Bandicoot have earned a ferocious reputation, thanks to their raucous, overflowing live shows that spin euphorically from post-punk and krautrock to glam stomp and art-pop sensuality at the drop of a note.

‘Dark Too Long’ is Bandicoot‘s debut single on Libertino, a song they describe as a “ frenzied cry of desperation from the depths of excess and loneliness, influenced by the driving rhythms of NEU! and Can.”

"Bandicoot are wired instinctively to the cathartic screams of John Lennon's Plastic Ono Band, the lustful danger of The Velvet Underground, and CAN's cinematic propulsion. They are the art-house provocateurs of Warhol's Factory brought to life on Swansea's rainy streets " - Libertino

Mae  Bandicoot  yn adfer cerddi Dylan Thomas, harddwch roc a rôl y 70au gan John Cale, a chrefft gerddorol melancolig Badfinger. Mae eu sŵn yn llifo fel blŵs ol-ddiwydianol drwy strydoedd concrit gwlyb Abertawe.

Mae gan Bandicoot enw da am eu perfformiadau byw sy'n chwyrlio o sŵn ôl-bync i krautrock i stomp glam a chelf pop synhwyrus o ddechrau i ddiwedd eu set.

'Dark Too Long ' yw'r sengl gyntaf i Bandicoot ryddhau drwy Libertino, cân sy'n cael ei ddisgrifio fel  "cri o anobaith o ddyfnderoedd unigrwydd a gormodedd, wedi'i ddylanwadu gan rythmau NEU! a Can"
