AWOOGA have unveiled new video ‘Blue Rose’, taken from their debut album Conduit released today via Rockosmos.
Check it out here:
‘Blue Rose’ is the third single from Conduit, the debut album by Sheffield Spacedoom grunge titans AWOOGA, perfectly capturing the band’s default state : huge singalong melodies with crushing weightiness.
Bassist and Singer, Tam Ali, commented: “The symbol of a Blue Rose is that of the impossible. Often it is the clue that the observer is merely the dreamer in a dreamstate.“
The band streamed Conduit ahead of release via Echoes and Dust, check it out here: https://www.echoesanddust.com/2018/04/album-stream-awooga-conduit/

A culmination of a year’s work resulting in a deep, heavy, tranquil and visceral record, Conduit is set to establish AWOOGA as one of the UK’s most exciting and unique acts in 2018.
Following on from 2016’s debut Alpha EP, AWOOGA have further explored the boundaries of dismal sludge and euphoric space to create something that that is very much their own. Conduit is a vast soundscape that fills nearly every wave-length, touches on every emotion. It flows, it confuses, it’s conflicted and it’s beautiful. It is AWOOGA.
Inspiration from Frank Zappa, Alice in Chains and Tool is immediately apparent, AWOOGA also give a nod to Miles Davis, who was a champion of musical diversity and one of the world’s greatest artists.
AWOOGA have performed at festivals such as Crooked Ways, Tramlines festival supporting Anathema and KAYA festival with Asian Dub Foundation, an impressive feat for a band with only one EP released. This year will see them tour far and wide with many more headline and festival dates to follow.
The first single, ‘Waterhole’, was released last month. Check it out here:
