The Fugues are an indie-rock band with songs about life, luck and love in the 21st Century. Influenced by the indie and pop-rock music of the 90s and 2000s, their colourful tones and vibrant melodies create a pacey, bright sound. Like if Pete Doherty ate Blur!
Driving the four-piece is their craving for moments of connection between audience and performer. Through their music they create the opportunity to not take themselves too seriously. This is shown by the music video for their debut single "Early Mornings", which answers the all important question of who would win out a chase between a banana and a gorilla. Each one of the band's music videos has been written by the members of the band themselves.
The Fugues have released five singles to date, with various pursuits for interesting creations. These range from a verse spoken in French by their bilingual front man in "Sunshine", to an eight-minute attempt at mixing rock and roll with Pink Floyd-like psychedelia in "Rubber Ego/Indigo Go". Their debut single "Early Mornings" set them off to a good start, with radio plays on Beat FM and BBC Radio Ulster's "Across The Line". What started out as a story of songwriters Kevin and Kaelan's first experiences with hangovers quickly turned into a narrative of those quiet moments in life that separate you from an ever busy world. “Long Time Waiting” is a more raucous affair; a shout out to all those who don’t want to have to sit idly by and fit in with the system.
Check out their new single “Stephen”. Out now!
