Sonic Gun presents:

Boy Azooga

 

Boy Azooga’s debut album, 1, 2 Kung Fu, is piloted by Davey Newington, a young man

with much musical heritage.

Davey took up the drums at the age of six. More recently, and operating as one Bongo

Fury, he became the rhythmic pulse for Late Night Pop Dungeon, sat behind the kit as

Charlotte Church plied joyous pop hedonism to Glastonbury and beyond. This would have been

enough for some, but now Davey returns as Boy Azooga.

 

Davey’s vocals and arrangements carry the tuneful yearning of early Badly Drawn Boy. But

the palette extends far beyond singer-songwriterly poignancy. Davey recruited friends Daf

Davies, Dylan Morgan and Sam Barnes to form the Boy Azooga live quartet, an ensemble

that swings smoothly from filmic instrumentals to a churning, rave-tinged rock that hints at

both Can and their progeny in Happy Mondays.

 

With influences from Caribou, Black Sabbath, Outkast, Van McCoy, Ty Segall and The Beastie Boys, Boy Azooga’s music an eclectic look into his coming of age. 

 

Secure your maracas, grab those sleighbells. The Boy Azooga beat is already among us –

and getting louder.
