In anticipation of their triumphant return, Bugeye have released the fantastic title track and single Never Let You Go, which you can buy now on Bandcamp. The track is taken from their forthcoming EP Never Let You Go, out on 8th July 2016 via Repeat Records/Badger Recording Co and available to pre-order now via iTunes.
The video for the single, which was directed by Emma Nathan (Suddenly, amongst others by Anna Calvi) and explores themes of domestic abuse, premiered on God Is In The TV and is available to watch now via the band’s YouTube channel.
A stream of the track, which premiered on The Revue, is also available for you to listen to now via Bugeye’s 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 fine 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 release of official single and title track Never Let You Go and the EP itself due to drop in July.
EP Never Let You Go by Bugeye, out 8th July 2016, is available to preorder on iTunes via Repeat Records/Badger Recording Co, with the title track available to buy now via the Bugeye Bandcamp.
