24th April | Crofters Rights

2018 has been a pretty successful year, as far it goes, for Boy Azooga. After signing for the revered and ever-broadening label, Heavenly back in November, the four-piece from Cardiff, led by the mercurially-creative magic of Davey Newington have received high praise from most music platforms you can name. They’ve been playlisted by BBC6 Music, they’ve recently supported The Magic Gang on their UK tour back in March and they are booked for Green Man in the summer, amongst other much-awaited festival outings.

You only have to listen to their eclectic and wide-reaching sound for you to see why they are being fawned over. That sound possesses a high-spirited penchant for inter-genre rhythms and infectious, comprehensive structures. One moment, they will be grooving to the garage-rock riff of ‘Loner Boogie’, the next slowing things down for the 60s-inflected surf of ‘Breakfast Epiphany,‘ all with a deep sense of melody entwined within their sound.

Now heading out on their first headline tour in support of their first full-length, 1 2, Kung Fu!, the band are heading to Crofters Rights for a nearly sold-out show this Tuesday, with support from the multi-faceted creativity of Bristol’s Zebrafi and Tropic. With that line-up, the night offers an exciting array of music that blurs the line between pop sensibility and experimental audacity.
