The Bongo Club cause a stir in the indie rock world with their incendiary video for “What You Want Us To Be.”

Three years and nine songs into their career The Bongo Club have played close to 300 shows in 18 countries, including the UK, Germany, USA, and obviously, their home turf, Sweden. Endless noodle-fed tours have given this energetic and talented band a following of fans across Europe.

"What You Want Us To Be", the video of which Rebel Noise premieres here, is taken from the band’s debut album Anybody Have A Lighter? released earlier this year.

The video offers a sneak peek into what it’s like to see The Bongo Club live. The video is vibrant and showcases thei band's explosive energy and takes the viewer on the road with them. With snippets from everywhere, including Berlin, Mexico City, and  their hometown Borås, the video gives the audience a taste of what they’re all about. Having just completed one leg of their European tour and returning to the UK in autumn, the new video serves as proof that The Bongo Club are meant to be seen live. 

The band members explain, "It's one of our most melodic tunes so far and a real banger live! You can tell it gets the crowd going. The song's about knowing what's best for you but doing the opposite.”


Touring is in their DNA and the video is a testament to it.
