Having made a splash in 2016, disco-punk three piece Bugeye have just released their new single, Wake Up, out now via Marwoo Records and available to buy on iTunes and stream on Spotify .
The brand new eye-opening video for Wake Up is an animated video by Philippe Blaine, featuring cage dancing politicians who bear more than a passing resemblance to Theresa May and Nigel Farage! It premiered on Team Rock and you can watch it via the band’s YouTube channel.
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.
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.
