Bio

Bugs are no longer reserved to the confines of the Brisbane scene in which they made their start, with a whirlwind couple of years shepherding the band and their heartfelt, honest and relatable brand of pop rock to the national stage.

Towards the release of their delicately introspective, pop-laden sophomore album ‘Self Help’ in September 2019, Bugs swiftly caught the attention of long-time listeners and first-time callers with their bouncing, infectious hit single ‘Seriously’. The track was picked up for high rotation by national youth broadcaster triple j, consistently sitting in the station’s most played tracks for several weeks.

Early 2020 saw the fruits of their labour continue, with an appearance at Falls Festival in Marion Bay, and ‘Seriously’ landing at #194 in triple j’s coveted Hottest 200 list, while the text line rang out with many a “shoulda been higher!”.

Ringing in the New Year with six sold out shows supporting Mallrat, and their Hottest 100 debut at #91 - as fate would have it, their Like A Version cover of Mallrat’s ‘Charlie’ - Bugs are ready to settle into the hearts of music lovers across the country with their new single ‘Diamond’.

Bugs just got down on one knee and gave us this absolute diamond... it's a 'yes' from me!

ahhhh [insert generic brand of frozen foods], the Bugs boys have done it again. and by it, I mean crafted a memorable and powerful indie-punk gem.
