Having made a splash in 2016, disco-punk three piece Bugeye return with their new single, Wake Up, out on 20th October 2017 (impact date 1st December 2017) via Marwoo Records and available to pre-order on iTunes.
Taking inspiration from 70’s punk and political movements of the time, fused with a modern DIY attitude, Bugeye take aim at the current social and political unrest sweeping the world, using their music as a call to arms, encouraging people to support one another in the fight for a brighter future. Elements of the riot grrrl sound that usurped the male dominated indie-rock scenes of the 90’s are flavoured with a sprinkling of the kind of upbeat indie-disco sound that made the likes of Le Tigre one of the most respected bands of their era. Wake Uppremiered on God Is In The TV and is now available to stream on the Bugeye Soundcloud page.
Bugeye have dedicated Wake Up to DIY collectives fighting to make a difference in their local communities such as The Zine UK for their unstoppable support for up and coming talent, This Feeling for creating a much needed buzz to help keep rock music alive in this country, The Music Trust for their #fightback campaigns against music venue closures, Loud Women for pushing forward the fight of women in music, Northern Exposure and all collective communities striving for positive change around the world.
The band, who are made up of Angela Martin (Vox, Guitar), Paula Snow (Bass) and Jack Houston (Drums), formed in the late 90’s playing at some of London’s most notable venues; taking in The Astoria to Wembleyand everything in between. Having returned from their hiatus in 2015, Bugeye played a number of shows in and around London before releasing their EP Never Let You Go in 2016. The wait was worthwhile with Bugeye picking up support from Gay Times, The Revue, God Is In The TV, Team Rock and Steve Lamacq’s BBC Radio 6 show.
Wake Up by Bugeye is out on 20th October 2017 (impact date 1st December 2017) via Marwoo Recordsand available to pre-order on iTunes.
