We are delighted to announce a brand new addition to the Heavenly Recordings roster: 

Boy Azooga.

The psych-flecked musical vehicle for Cardiff’s Davey Newington multifarious musical mission. And today they release their Heavenly debut single,  ‘Face Behind Her Cigarette’.

Produced by Eddie El Shakarchie aka Dr Ed Boogie, recorded in Eddie’s front room in Cardiff and with hints of Hot Butter’s 1972 synth-pop smash Popcorn, it draws inspiration from the late Nigerian funk overlord William Onyeabor. Talking about the track, Davey said:

“This song is basically just a celebration (rip off) of the late great William Onyeabor. I wanted the percussion to be purposefully a bit too loud, maybe by the usual standard. Loads of Onyeabor’s percussion is blaring in the mix, but it makes it sound so live and feely. I wanted to create that feeling of being in the room where the music is being played.”

Loud & Quiet have premiered the track.


‘Face Behind Her Cigarette’ is accompanied by a suitably freewheeling video directed by local film-maker Toby Cameron. Davey said: 

“Hope you enjoy this intergalactic do it yourself green screen hand percussion odyssey as much as we enjoyed making it. For optimum viewing/listening pleasure, watch in full screen with headphones on in low light with high head. Love, Azooga”
