We heart Bugeye’s new single and accompanying video big time – not least because those superbabes have dedicated it to DIY collectives fighting to make a difference in their local communities, such as The Zine UK, This Feeling, The Music Trust, Northern Exposure, and, yours truly, LOUD WOMEN! Right back atcha with that lovebomb, you lovely Bugeyes you.
Our ego-flattery aside, this is a top class disco-punk track which showcases everything that’s brilliant about this Croydon threesome. Their roots as a 90’s riot grrrl-tinged indie-pop band of note are still proudly on display, but fused with a modern DIY attitude. The groovily animated video (by Philippe Blaine) features Theresa May and Nigel Farage cage dancing … don’t let that put you off though, it’s a cute watch.
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 Wembley and everything in between. Having returned from their hiatus in 2015, Bugeye played a number of shows in and around London (including the second ever LOUD WOMEN show, at the Silver Bullet, fact fans!) before releasing their EP Never Let You Go in 2016.
