Local electro-pop duo Ugly Bunny are releasing their debut full-length album Tokyo on Dec. 10, 2013, and to celebrate they’re playing an album release show at Bows and Arrows on Saturday, Dec. 21, 2013. When I listen to Ugly Bunny, I hear a fine young band in tune with the best of their genre in both the local scene (Dusty Brown, Doom Bird) as well as the national one (Grouplove, Kisses, St. Lucia). Ugly Bunny is 17-year-old Gwendolyn Giles, also one-half of prominent local rock duo Dog Party, and 16-year old Camryn Nichols. The two are also dating. They both play keys and share vocal duties, and the chemistry is goddamn brilliant. If you like synth-driven pop songs with danceable grooves and catchy melodies, check out Tokyo. Doors open for their album release show on Dec. 21 at 7 p.m. and the cover charge is $6. Also performing will be Musical Charis, Contra and Young Aundee (of Who Cares) will be performing a special DJ set. All ages are welcome. Learn more at Facebook.com/uglybunny
