Fans of Cucamaras, the dynamic postpunk/indie rock band, are in for a treat as the band prepares to release their highly anticipated EP, " BUCK ROGERS TIME."

The Nottingham-based four-piece band CUCAMARAS has been making a name for themselves with their distinct, genre-defying sound. The band, comprising Joshua Hart on guitar and vocals, Oliver Bowley on guitar and vocals, Joseph Newton on drums, and Daniel McGrath on bass and vocals, has captured the attention of music lovers and critics alike with their electrifying riffs, soaring vocals, and upbeat rhythms.

Their debut EP "Soft Soap" was a hit, earning them critical acclaim from notable publications like BBC Radio 1, Clash, and NME. Named as one of NME's 100 Essential Artists for 2023, the band returns with their latest offering, "Buck Rogers Time," recorded at York's Young Thugs Studios with producer Jonny Hooker. (Low Hummer, Bull, Avalanche Party)

The EP comprises five tracks, including the standout "Cotton Wool," which showcases the band's most ambitious and melodic soundscape to date. The EP's title is inspired by a phrase used in American prisons, referring to a sentence so long that one will never get out. The themes of being stuck in purgatory or longing for more are explored throughout the EP, a recurring theme in CUCAMARAS' music.

With "Buck Rogers Time," CUCAMARAS takes their sound to the next level, incorporating classic rock, pop, and alternative elements to create something even more remarkable and unique. The band's raw energy and emotion are evident in their powerful live performances, making them an act to watch.

Fans of Hotel Lux, Fontaines DC, Egyptian Blue, Lumer, and Courting won't want to miss out on "Buck Rogers Time," the latest EP from CUCAMARAS.
