New World Artists, Exclusive Booking Agents for Bugs.

Hailing from Brisbane, Bugs are a light-hearted group of mates who find joy in crafting infectiously happy pop music, and packaging it up with a dose of honest and relatable songwriting.

 

2018 has served as their most jam-packed year to date, with the band scoring an opening slot at Falls Festival after a triple j unearthed win, as well as supporting USA legends Cloud Nothings, and Aussie heavyweights British India, The Hard Aches, Alex Lahey & WAAX. Off the back of their grippingly honest millennial fan-favourite ‘Neighbourhood’, the band also delivered their engaging and animated live show to crowds at Mountain Goat Valley Crawl and Melbourne Music Week.

 

March saw the release of instant hit ‘Glue’ via the renowned Domestic LaLa 7” Club. The track received back to back plays on triple j, premiering on Good Nights with Bridget Hustwaite and a spotlight on Home & Hosed with Declan Byrne the next night. The triple j Unearthed-premiered clip for ‘Glue’ has been raking in the love, with almost 112,000 views to date.

 

In April, Bugs released their EP ‘Social Slump’, and embarked on a huge national tour throughout May and June that took them to almost every corner of the country, selling out dates in Brisbane, Melbourne Sydney, Adelaide and Wollongong.

 

Packed-out sets at BIGSOUND followed suit, including an appearance at the Levi’s Music Prize showcase, before hitting the stage at Beer InCider festival alongside the likes of fellow Brisbanites The Jungle Giants, Morning Harvey, and Sweater Curse.

 

With an ever-growing slew of supporters in tow, Bugs are quickly establishing themselves as one of the most exciting up-and-coming bands the country has to offer.
 

"Main man Connor Brooker is one of those annoyingly gifted shitheads who can write, play, and do everything else.... Kinda punky, kinda rock, kinda buzzy but with that attitude and slightly jaundiced observation of the #Strayan condition that has served many from yer Grinspoon, to Smith Street, to Dune Rats, to a bunch of others of note with holes in the knees of their jeans." - The Music
