We introduce Sydney, Australia's Jonathan Boulet, who presents his first European release Gubba, due out August 25th on Popfrenzy/Caroline and will play London's Scotch St James next Thursday July 3rd.
After two records on esteemed Australian label Modular (home to the likes of Tame Impala, Cut Copy, Pond & many more) which were both critically and publicly praised back home, Boulet has relocated to London to take on the West of the globe.
Gubba showcases a snotty, riffy new sound for Jonathan, heavier than anything he's done before, and with more in common with the likes of Les Savy Fav & Fucked Up than his previous electronic-led work.
Gubba is entirely self-produced and bludgeons like a doom record sped up to garage-punk tempos.Gubba is pop music with a scummy outer layer. Gubba is not angry but likes to have fun.
Jonathan Boulet and his band will play in London with his new band for the first time next Thursday July 3rd at The Scotch of St James.
