Sonic Gun presents:
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.
