Describe Your Sound

There is no doubt that a Bughunt set is diverse. Influenced by classic rock as well as Indie, Bughunt ranges from smoky
reverb drenched guitars to flat out rock anthems, and songs about everything from rock ‘n roll tragics, to love lost and found, tall tales of impossible feats and everything in
between through to their signature tune, Bughunt which is all about you guessed it catching bugs.
Bughunt traverse rockabilly, rock, power pop, punk, funk, ska and African influenced numbers as well as ballads and slow blues. The Bughunt mission is to get you dancing without forsaking lyrical content; they aim to first engage your hips and then your mind, delivering mature, engaging stories wrapped up in many musical flavours. But ultimately it’s all about fun; a Bughunt gig is not suitable for shoegazing.
