BUGEYE‘s hot pop tart single,‘Electric’, is released 29th November. Produced by Paul Tipler it’s available to pre-order October 29th. Pre-save now (DistroKid). They tour from 24th October, supporting She drew the gun.
Angela Martin (vocals, guitar), Paula Snow (bass), Kerrie Smith (drums), Grace Healey (keyboards). Part of counter culture’s blooming, grass roots arts movements, Bugeye bring bright songs and good times.
The punchy analogue-x-digital sound created with esteemed producer, Paul Tipler (Elastica, Stereolab, The Tuts etc.) works as a recording and live entertainment to keep feet moving.
Rated “The best punk disco band” by BBC’s Janice Long, the songs are hooky and dynamic, but that’s not all that reels us in. There’s musical activism for art and articulation that we can relate to from an ever busy band. They are advocates for the LGBTQ community and ecological concerns, mentoring students, managing artists and supporting charities, art and feminism:
Quoted in a recent article for The Guardian about the rise of all-female festival lineups” lead singer, Angela “puts the boom in such festivals down to “unrest among women in music”. This, she says, leads to an increase in female promoters creating their own events.”
CroCroLand (festival curated by Angela and her partner, Julia Woolams), created a music-passioned blueprint. With holistically balanced, credible shows and an inclusive community. April’s debut sold out in advance. A sister touring arm, ‘As The Cro Cro Flies’ is newly born.
They’re creating their first album with Paul Tipler. Zeenagers were amongst followers out in force for a recent show with bis and LIINES. We got a sneak peek of new songs – ‘Electric‘ is one. If reactions are anything to go by this 2020 LP is going to be loved – as are this band, coming, maybe to your town, soon.
