Bugeye releases exhilarating new single 'Summer In The City'
Bugeye are a queer alternative rock band that hail from Croydon. Since their formation, they've reinvented their sound to create a unique offering that they feel like represents them. Heavy guitars and bass, electronic beats and heartwarming synths are some of the enticing elements that glimmer in the mix.
Their newest single 'Summer In The City' is the perfect representation of this new sound. Playful but energy-fulled, the track will get you up and dancing in no time. Drums thud through the mix, forming a fantastic partnership with the bass creating an infectious groove. On top lies a sizzling synth line alongside guitars that ebb and flow between each other. The vocal line is brimming with personality and really gives the track their own stamp.
Talking about the new single, front woman Angela Martin shares: “Taking influences from the likes of Wet Leg, Walt Disco but also looking back to the likes of Blur and Gary Numan, ‘Summer in the City’ is a playful tune that explores the society we live in today. From feeling like you’re winning in life, to turning a corner to tensions and violence, to dating apps to our fickle nature and scrolling social media boredom. Musically we tried to reflect the theme with a lazy Sunday afternoon swagger, but with electronic pulsing tones and guitar hooks of a cyclical nature (reflecting life) to drive the song forward.”
Bugeye are favourites on BBC Introducing, John Kennedy Radio X, Amy Lame 6 Music and winners of the people's vote on Amazing Radio. 'Ready Steady Bang' was included on Louder Than War Top 50 Albums of 2020, and Loud Women Top Albums of 2020. The band has also received features on a long list of indie publications with rave reviews.
