London based electro-trash, riot grrrl rock band Bugeye have today released their wonderful new EP, Never Let You Go, out now via Repeat Records/Badger Recording Co and available to buy on iTunes.
The EP is a quirky, dramatic, offbeat and intensely groovy record taking inspiration from 90’s and early 00’s female fronted alt-rock bands and is available to stream exclusively on Gay Times Magazine. Lead single and title track Never Let You Go wouldn’t be out of place blaring from the Twede’s Cafe jukebox made famous in Twin Peaks, accompanied of course by a slice of cherry pie and a “Damn fine cup ‘o coffee!”. The video for the single, which was directed by Emma Nathan, who directed Suddenly 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.
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.
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 now officially out.
