Dude Safari, our next Artist Of The Week bring you Gunge Pop vibez of the best kind! After the worst year ever, Dude Safari might have arrived just in time.
After drunkenly coming up with the band name at a festival in 2013, lead singer and guitarist Jamie Tipson mentioned it to long time friend and rhythm guitarist Ben Burroughes and the idea was conceived. After sitting on the name and idea for almost 7 years and being in several different musical projects, Jamie and Ben finally decided after a miserable 2020 that the time was right to pull the trigger. Pulling in long time band member, friend and all round bass monster Fred Higley was the final piece of the jigsaw and the Safari was born.
Listen to their latest single ‘Maybe It’s a UFO’ here:
Dude Safari is a blend of everything this trio love; powerful grunge pop with catchy melodies and a sense of humour. Their journey began early 2021 as they started to release music that they had recorded remotely from their own houses. Currently they have a handful of tracks available on all streaming services, and they have already had support from Spotify editorial playlists and BBC Introducing in the South.
Check out their comical, home music video for ‘Big Worse’ here:
