New World Artists, Exclusive Booking Agents for Bugs.

Hailing from Brisbane, Bugs are a boyish trio of blokes that 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. The band also performed at Mountain Goat Valley Crawl and Melbourne Music Week, off the back of their grippingly honest millennial fan-favourite ‘Neighbourhood’.
 

March saw the release of instant hit ‘Glue’, which received back to back plays premiering on triple j’s Good Nights with Bridget Hustwaite and a spotlight on Home & Hosed with with Declan Byrne the next night. The triple j Unearthed-premiered clip for ‘Glue’ has now clocked almost 112,000 views

 

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. The Brisbane and Melbourne dates sold out within the first two weeks, Sydney, Adelaide and Wollongong shows followed shortly after. With an ever-growing slew of supporters in tow, Bugs are quickly establishing themselves as one of the most exciting up-and-coming acts in Australia.

 

"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
