Video Premiere: Bugeye – ‘Blue Fire’

Following their last uplifting single, ‘When The Lights Go Out’, and with acclaim from the likes of John Kennedy and Amazing Radio, GIHE faves Bugeye have now shared another offering from their upcoming debut album.

Raging with Angela Martin’s gritty, sultry vocals and whirring electro hooks, ‘Blue Fire’ is perhaps more disco and less punk than previous releases, but maintains all the colourful pizzazz and magnificent vibrant energy that we’ve come to know and love from the band. A perfect uptempo blast of life that we all need right now.

A woman of many talents (musician, songwriter, promoter, manager, mother and now film-maker, to name a few!), Angela has now made a beautiful homemade new video for ‘Blue Fire’. An immersive collage of footage of the band spliced together with poignant clips of masked protesters, it perfectly captures all the colour and retro energy of Bugeye, whilst oozing a striking riotous force in these uncertain times. A necessary watch from this awesome group of wonder-women.

Watch the new video, for the first time, here:

When The Lights Go Out, the debut album from Bugeye, is out 10th July via Reckless Yes.

#ThrowbackThursday: GIHE w/ Girls Rock London 28.11.19

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, we’re unable to make it in to the Hoxton Radio studio to broadcast our weekly live new music show from 7-9pm. Instead, we’re sharing previous show recordings as #ThrowbackThursday sessions, so you can still enjoy 2 hours of new music & chats with some of our favourite artists & allies each week.

Today, we’ve picked our November 2019 show with the wonderful Alex & Jodi from Girls Rock London. They joined Kate and guest-host Beth White live in the studio to chat about the amazing work they do with the global organisation, which encourages girls and young women to create the music they want to hear.

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, we’re unable to make it in to the Hoxton Radio studio to broadcast our weekly live new music show from 7-9pm.

Tash also played her phone interview with Chrisy Hurn from Canada’s Basement Revolver.
