Bio

In 2008 Seth Bogart assembled a crew of friends and musicians and formed Hunx and His Punx. As an openly gay and outrageously flamboyant frontman, Hunx's larger than life persona was equally as impressive as the band's catchy girl group-inspired sound, self-described as "young oldies". Bogart co-wrote some of the first Hunx and His Punx songs with Arizona garage rocker Nobunny, who invited the band along on their first touring experience. Opening for Nobunny and Jay Reatard, the group developed their over-the-top stage show, which could find Bogart crowd surfing, cajoling the audience or trying to make out with the entire front row, depending on the show. A compilation of tracks called Gay Singles arrived in early 2010. The band continued to tour, doing support slots for Girls and Harlem before embarking on their own headlining tours in 2011. The group signed a deal with Sub Pop subsidiary Hardly Art and released their first proper full length Too Young To Fall In Love in 2011. In between tours Hunx kept busy as a co-owner and stylist at Down At Lulu's, a hair salon in Oakland, California. He also appeared in a controversial role in the highly sexually explicit video for Girls' song "Lust For Life". In 2012, Hunx released the album Hairdresser Blues sans Punks, recording in New York with Ivan Julian, original member of Richard Hell and The Voidoids. An only somewhat more subtle set of songs than the full-band fare, Bogart made mention to the press that it felt much more like a solo record than the all-out craziness of a Hunx & His Punx record. In interviews at the time, he stated "A lot of this album deals with topics I don't usually write about. I wasn't concerned with entertaining people with these songs. I just wanted to get them out of me."

After releasing three album as sweaty hedonist Hunx (two with His Punx, one by himself), Seth Bogart releases his first truly self-titled record. The fried garage pop and retro balladry of albums past has been swapped for a club-ready sound that plays like a fever dream set inside an episode of "Miami Vice": bright colors, buzzing synthesizers, chipmunked vocals, the smooth confidence of adults on the prowl for meaningful sex.
