London based four-piece Bugeye create forward-thinking, danceable punk. Their new single ‘Don’t Stop’ comes alongside the news that the band will be releasing their debut album later this year on independent record label, Reckless Yes.
Angela Martin’s Sleater Kinney-esque vocals and driving guitar team up with Grace Healy’s ’90s style synth lines in perfect harmony. ‘Don’t Stop’ is a riotously catchy number that will certainly make you want to dance, even if it is centred around the perils of drinking to excess.
Of the single, the band have explained: “’Don’t Stop’ is about alcohol abuse and the cyclical state that goes hand in hand with this. It’s a downward spiral of fuck ups and promises that tomorrow will be different. It’s about the denial of even having a problem in the first place and the pressure that society and the media put on us to ‘Don’t Stop’”
Having originally formed in the late ’90s, news of Bugeye’s debut album is a welcome development for fans and we certainly can’t wait to hear where their sound is headed. A steady stream of solid singles in recent years have already cemented their position as key players in the Riot Grrrl scene and we’re sure that this is a reputation that’s set to grow. Watch this space.
