Following in the footsteps of his older brother Alister Wright (Cloud Control), Doug Wright formed We Say Bamboulée in 2008 with brothers Peter and Russell Fitzgibbon to make their live debut, taking out 2nd place in the Sydney University Band Competition.
They’ve since shared the stage with many great Australian bands including Philadelphia Grand Jury, The John Steel Singers, Art Vs Science, Richard in Your Mind, Cassette Kidsand Dukes of Windsor as well as appearing at last year’s Parklife and Peat’s Ridge festivals. After two years spent accumulating the ultimate collection of obscure vintage keyboards, skateboarding, tie dyeing t-shirts, and hiking in their picturesque blue mountains backyard, the trio decided to drop the distractions, and recruited Richard In Your Mind's Jordy Lane (aka Shady Lane) to help put the finishing touches on their debut EP. The end result is ‘Bush Tricks’, 8 tracks of quirky electro pop from a place somewhere between Yeasayer and The Postal Service, an impressive ﬁrst release which is sure to make even the most cynical scenester's head turn.
