Bio

Bugs are no longer reserved to the confines of the Brisbane scene in which they made their start, with the last twelve months 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 Sept 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!”.

Amidst their brilliant triple j Like A Version debut in February, rumours of new music started to bubble and build into the release of April single ‘Can’t Get Enough’, which scored praise across the board from the likes of triple j, Spotify, The Guardian, Tonedeaf, and Mixdown Magazine, Aussie community radio more.

Now their new single ‘Old Youth Feeling’ arrives alongside a promise of another full length record in the coming months, soon to hit the ears of those who just can’t get enough of Bugs.

Thanks for injecting a bit of F-U-N at the end of a year seriously lacking such vibes.

if you don't get a bugs song straight away it's best to chuck it on repeat a few times. 10 mins later you'll be sweaty, smiley and clearing you calendar for the rest of the arvo.
