Bogan Via has made a quite a mark on the scene, quickly playing packed shows including a European tour and festival appearances at: SXSW, Culture Collide, Folsom Street Fair, Phoenix Pride, Insomnia, San Diego Music Thing, Summer Ends, & Viva Phx. Bogan Via’s ability to win over fans with their unique sound has already earned them opening spots for the likes of: Phantogram, Little Dragon, Halsey, Todd Terje, Ladyhawke, Glass Animals, Twin Shadow, Darwin Deez, Austra, Yacht, Betty Who, and many more, as well as remixes by: Geographer, Miniature Tigers, Database, Micon, & Terminal 11.
For now, Bogan Via’s graceful and danceable indie rock is still under the radar, but they are quickly rising to the surface, bringing their melodies and pulsating beats with them. Over the past few years, Bogan Via’s music has been featured on every blog from EDM to Consequence of Sound. With overwhelming responses to first listens of the record, this is the year that Bogan Via will start to make a splash.
