Queensland fun-lovers BUGS are back with new music after a huge few months with the release of their new single, ‘Diamond’.
‘Diamond’ marks the first track from the band since the release of their standalone singles throughout 2020, ‘Old Youth Feeling’ and ‘Can’t Get Enough’.
“‘Diamond’ is about modern society’s obsession with status; acquisition of assets prioritised over humanity and empathy,” said frontman Connor Brooker of the song.
“‘It pokes fun at the lifestyle choices of people who pursue such vain fulfilment. I’ve always thought someone whose self esteem runs in parity with the need to purchase things must be lacking in fundamental quality. I can’t imagine feeding capitalism based on insecurity grows a personality of much substance.”
The release of ‘Diamond’ also follows BUGS’ debut Hottest 100 spot, making it into the 2020 countdown with their cover of Mallrat‘s ‘Charlie’.
