Single cover of We Don't Need Room For Lovin' by The Bug Club

Released in February, We Don’t Need Room For Lovin’ is the new single from quirky trio “The Bug Club”.

Taken from the upcoming 4 track EP, Launching Moondream One, which is set for an imminent Spring release, this short, two minute single has already gained airplay by Marc Riley over on BBC Radio 6 Music.

What the track lacks in length, it makes up for in energetic likability from the get go. With no lengthy intro to distract us, we are greeted with the male vocals of Sam, which quickly are joined by a harmonising female voice, Tilly, that go hand in hand, low alongside high, to escort us through a cheeky little ditty sure to get you bopping along. I can’t help but associate the sound with a farmer’s hoedown, with a folky guitar happily flitting along in the background, mixed in with old fashioned rock and roll for the pure danceable melody it conjures up. The drummer Dan provides us with the steady beat, that you’ll find your head nodding along to, without even realising. For me the moral of this tune is that life is for living a life worth talking about!

 The simplicity of the track is what makes it so loveable and addictive. It doesn’t change or evolve with each listen, yet has a clever way of making you want more. It’s a happy and comfortable track to listen to when you need a little pick me up! A pause and a euphoric shout, take us into a twiddling guitar to fade.

Having gigged relentlessly over the years, this is another band that has been halted by a pandemic, but they certainly haven’t stopped, with the upcoming EP due to be their first actual record.

Without a doubt, a field and cider needs to be accompanied by this  adorable little tune, something to look forward to!
