Boy Azooga share ‘Jerry’ an ode to a dog

Azooga, Azooga, Azooga

8th of June, just over a month until the debut album from the fast-rising Cardiff rockers Boy Azooga. Davey and co have released the dog inspired ‘Jerry’ and accompanying it is a video recorded at their local dog home.

This is the latest track from 1,2 Kung Fu!, which follows previous releases Face Behind Her Cigarette and Loner Boogie.

After smashing their sold-out hometown gig at Cardiff’s Clwb Ifor Bach on Saturday the shape-shifting four-piece are coming for you. Jerry is the next single set to get you off your feet and boogieing. Dogs are the best right?

Talking about the delightful video, directed by Toby Cameron and shot at Cardiff’s dog home, Davey Newington said:

Jerry is one of the oldest songs on the album. I took inspiration from a song called Do I Get So Shy by Shoes, it’s understated and calm with sweet lyrics. I like how the singer is asking questions in the lyrics of that song, it makes it more vulnerable.

We filmed the video in Cardiff Dogs Home, both dogs featured (Bander and Winston) have now been re-homed if you were wondering. The guys at Cardiff Dogs Home love people to go in and visit and meet the dogs. Check out the links below to see which dogs are currently in need of a home.

Davey and Daf, Dylan and Sam are set to take Britain by storm supporting bands such as UMO and Rolling Blackouts and Coastal Fever before later this year for their first headline UK tour including a show at the Scala in London.
