“Bored Spies are currently based in Singapore, South Korea, and Arizona, but they have a minimalist rock style that spans from Talk Talk’s London to Mazzy Star’s Southern California.” Spin Magazine

“sweet yet brash, bold yet amiable – full of contrasting hues and yet dead-eyed focused on heart and soul” Power Of Pop

“the band mix traditional song structures with progressive rock elements, exploring the space between pop and abstract minimalism” Other Sounds

At the request of Bored Spies, support are Damnably’s homegrown smallgang, who played a brilliant set supporting Bitch Magnet, impressing and befriending the band. The London based trio have been making a name for themselves with volcanic live shows exploding tight, poppy post-punk with effortless complexity. Bitch Magnet, Shonen Knife, Versus and Geoff Farina love these guys and so should you!
