How do you like to wake up? Slow and steady on the weekend, I’d guess. Well, that’s what you’ll get when you tune in to Press Play with Gina K on The Verge and Iceberg. Joining Gina in the studio this week is the hugely talented Bahamas. He’ll be playing us tracks from his latest record, Bahamas is Afie! Plus, Gina will play a track from the newly released Sam Roberts 5 song EP called Counting the Days. Finally, there’s a brand new number one on the Fresh Five Countdown!
From Bahamas Facebook page: Afie Jurvanen isn’t from the Bahamas. He’s a Finnish-Canadian from Barrie–a working class town in rural Ontario. But his chosen epithet is fitting. Since 2009 he’s been making music under the name Bahamas–writing songs about sunsets, love affairs, and making out with crooked smiles. Through simple arrangements, he charts an escape route from the snow belt to the coral reefs.
