Bugs’ – a trio of boyish Brisbane blokes making infectiously happy Noise / Pop.
When a swag of iconic Australian anthems were bought to life in 2014 by lo-fi recordings of songwriter Connor Brooker (Pro Vita, White Wash) in his bedroom, ‘Bugs’ was cultivated.
Joined by Brock Weston (Drums) and Jordan Brunoli (Bass) in 2015; ‘Bugs‘ have gone from strength to strength by gaining a tidal wave of support from fans and within industry for their loveable brand of bashful Australian garage guitar pop.
Sold Out East Coast shows in which small venue rooms swelled to house parties; & persistent triple j airplay of buzz singles ‘Instant Coffee’, ‘Tinnies’ and ‘Best Friend’ catapulted the band into the industry spotlight in 2016.
It has seen them share the stage with PUP (Canada), Modern Baseball (US) and Twin Peaks (US); not to mention locals Hockey Dad, Good Boy, Bleeding Knees Club and Spiderbait – in the last 12 months alone.
The band are prepared for a flarin’ conclusion to 2017, having just released their latest single ‘Neighbourhood’, as well as a spot on the Falls Festival Byron Bay Lineup.
“Packing the punch and bloody A+ lyrics, I’ve chuckled at least three times” – Bridget Hustwaite, Triple J
“You guys are so endearing I’d put up with that neighbourhood just to be around ya” – Nat Tencic, Triple J
“Get some great vibes on this song vocally, big sound and so well produced sonically… all in all I feel like I should and could take on the world now. Thx guys.” – Zan Rowe, Triple J
