Scuttlebuggs is an indie band from the Midwest. Their original vocal melodies, harmonies and lyrics are the focal point of their sound. Inspired equally by the origins of rock and roll, folk, country and doo-wop, the duo offers modern perspective to classic genres. People have likened their music to Neil Young, LOW and Simon and Garfunkel. Their debut album "After Brilliance" was raw and filled with genuine emotion - it was tracked live on analog tape at legendary Chicago studio Pieholden Suite Sound in 2013 and received glowing reviews: "their harmonies are delicate and graceful, and bring an indie edge to the Americana arrangements"... reviews additionally described songs as "beautiful", "haunting" and "positively life-affirming." [Leicester Bangs].  The duo recently completed a successful month long tour around Japan which further inspired their creative journey, then doing an impromptu tour of the US with a limited edition CD combining their two most recent EPs: "No Fast Legs" and "End Of The Itch”. In 2018, another review described their lyrics as "perfect”, "genius", and "a punch in the stomach through their pensive penning style”... before attempting to sum up the Scuttlebuggs sound: “Genre-wise, Scuttlebuggs skate between a Lo Fi Dream Pop sound and throw in some Folk to perfectly round off their ethereally strange combination of sounds.” [A&R Factory].  Scuttlebuggs are currently preparing to record another full length album back in Chicago before further touring around the globe.
