Bodega should be thoroughly enjoying their UK tour right now after releasing one of the most pleasingly idiosyncratic rock debuts of 2018.
Endless Scroll ‘is a snotty, angry, silly, ridiculous record, almost the perfect embodiment of punkish ideals’, according to Live4ever’s review, and we were able to sample it live when the tour reached London’s Dome venue last night. Alberto Pezzali has the gallery.
“But the best thing about the album is how, while doing this, it still manages to avoid every punk ideal by actually being passionate, earnest and frank too,” the review continues.
“What the band say throughout might be funny, might be a little near the mark, but it’s always honest. And what makes this even more exciting is they speak their truth with utter abandon on an album of intense energy and humour.”
Bodega play Latitude and the appropriately named Bodega Social Club in Nottingham before moving onto mainland Europe for the remainder of their July shows.
