The band has played everywhere from The Great Escape Festival to DIY house gigs and CMJ Music Marathon in America. Their sound is both melodic and loud; ultra-catchy, unashamedly grunge-rock-pop songs with plenty of bite.

Glasgow-based trio Halfrican are as intriguing and captivating as their name and tongue-in-cheek photo suggest. The multi-international band consists of songwriter / guitarist Sancho Büna, drummer ‘Jet’ Jackson Marlette and bassist Choi Paul.
Their sound is genuinely original; an amalgamation of punk, garage, surf and 60s rock and roll influences which combine to produce some brash but brilliant DIY guitar driven noise-pop.
Double AA side ‘Life Is Hard’ / ‘He’s Around’ is released tomorrow on 7” vinyl and digital download via Glasgow’s El Rancho Records
