NEWS: Bugeye release fierce new single ‘Signs And Exits’

Bugeye have just released their fierce new single ‘Signs And Exits,’ woven with dirty guitars, disco beats, sizzling synths and exploding bass riffs that accelerate into catchy hooks. Bugeye asks you to “be prepared to hit the dancefloor and join the revolution.” With lyrics touching on subjects from the mundanity of modern city life, to global issues such as racism and climate change, tunes come wrapped in a riotous optimism that urges you to dance.

The latest track, ‘Signs & Exits‘ is about bullying at school and online. Bugeye say, “Children can be cruel and innocence can be destroyed in an instant with words and actions of which there seems like there is no escape. It’s about the transition of innocence into the world of school – a battleground where the rules change daily and the warmth, kindness and protection you once knew are stripped away. Where the only place you really want to be is home. Being in school can be hell on earth. The “misfits” are picked on for being different and if you manage to go unnoticed for a day, then it was a good day. Secondary school is about survival. Trying to work out who you are while also trying to fit in.”

The track is accompanied by a striking video inspired by ‘Lord of the Flies, ‘We Need To Talk About Kevin. The Boomtown Rats’ ‘Tell Me Why I Don’t Like Mondays’ and is directed by award-winning Laura Jean Marsh. Watch below.

Bugeye said, “The school I went to was bloody scary and it was very much a case of trying to get between lessons as quickly as you could, keep your head down and avoid certain people at all costs!

Bugeye are a sequin-drenched all-female four-piece hailing from the concrete shores of Croydon.Front women and Bugeye’s songwriter, Angela Martin formed the band with school friend and bass player Paula Snow.
