First invented as kids in the late 90’s, Bugeye had an affecting influence on the London music scene with their stripped down, yet raucous sound, intended to make you shake your hips and tap your feet - a sound that permeated indie disco dance floors throughout the capital. Now the band make a triumphant return with the release of their forthcoming EP Never Let You Go, out on 8th July 2016 via Repeat Records/Badger Recording Co.
To mark the announcement of their new record the band are giving away the thumping opening track 'Disco Dancer' which is free to download now via the Bugeye Soundcloud page.
Having first formed in the late 90’s supporting the likes of The Cranberries at Wembley, Bugeye reformed last year after a series of events drew them back together. The result of these cosmic events, is an EP that not only hints at what could have been, but clears the path for the talented three-piece to fulfil their undoubted potential. Bugeye draws parallels with a number of the defining indie rock bands of the late 90’s/early noughties such as Sleater-Kinney, Le Tigre and Gossip as they pursue, with a great deal of success, the ultimate rock and roll sound. Blending cherry-liqueur lyrics, bubblegum-kneecap bass electrics, goth-heavy drum compactions and high-rise guitar sculptures, Bugeye have created a beautifully, unapologetic riot grrrl-inspired record that is both notable for it’s contemporary sound as much as it is for it’s throwback qualities. Quirky, dramatic, offbeat and intensely groovy, Never Let You Go wouldn’t be out of place blaring from the Twede’s Cafe jukebox, accompanied of course by a slice of cherry pie and a “Damn fin cup ‘o coffee!”.
Comprising Angela Martin (Vox, Guitar), Paula Snow (Bass) and Jack Houston (Drums), the trio have reintroduced themselves to the live London music scene with a number of recent gigs around the city and beyond. However, the band are now just hitting their stride with ‘Disco Dancer’ having been released as a free download, the forthcoming release of official single and title track Never Let You Go accompanied by a music video exploring the theme of domestic violence by director, Emma Nathan (director of Anna Calvi’s Suddenly) and the EP itself due to drop in July.
Never Let You Go by Bugeye is out on 8th July 2016 via Repeat Records/Badger Recording Co.
