BOOM! BAP! POW! is their name and trashy doo-wop pop n' soul is their mission. Their blockbuster live show features the larynx shredding one minute; sweet as sugar the next vocals of Novac Bull as well as live sax and explosive call and response dynamics.

Biography

Perth Rock n' Soul merchants Boom! Bap! Pow! are a band that know how to work their crowd the old fashioned way. They've spent the last few years clocking up kilometres and appearing on just about every stage on offer. Give them a few planks of wood to jive on and an audience to sway and Boom! Bap! Pow! will put their heads down and get down to business. The rest of the country has also fallen for their lightning-in-a-bottle style as they've toured with the likes of Eli 'Paperboy' Reed, Lake Street Dive and Royal Crown Revue, played huge national festivals such as Queenscliffe and Laneway and won a multitude of plaudits far and wide.
 
Two years on from the release of sophomore album So Heavy, lead single ‘Suit’ is showing no signs of going away. After being selected by the the likes of Bonds, Value City Furniture (US) and GILT the track has recently been commissioned by Diet Coke and Microsoft for their respective Economy Class and Surface Pro 23 campaigns, which has seen the 2013 WAM Pop Song of The Year award winner connect with a worldwide audience. Currently sitting on 430,000 views Youtube Views, over 160,000 stream, 20,000 plus sales, 34,000 Shazams Suit is showing no signs of slowing down as it makes it's way around the world like the little song that could.
 
Currently working on the follow up to So Heavy, Boom! Bap! Pow! will be hitting the studio and touring extensively, including international dates, as they head deeper into 2015. Be sure not to miss the amalgamation of celebratory sounds and undeniable hooks that Bull and her tight-as-a-drum cohorts prove their reputation on.

Lyrics

Suit

Written By: Bracknell / Bull / Hines / Hooper / Salvaire

You're so cute I wanna wear you like a suit
I think you'd look pretty good on me
You're so cute I wanna wear you like a suit
I think you'd look pretty good on me
Ok alright, Ok alright

Don't know how it started to start but now it's staring to stop
Kind of rough but you got the stuff to make me hot
All legs and arms and feet and fingers and toes
I want you draped across my shoulders want you close to the bone

My World

Written By: Bracknell / Bull / Hines / Hooper / Salvaire

My world wouldn't crumble if you weren't around
It's not like mountains crumble every time you lay me down
Honey I know you did your best but the truth just got to be told
I'm too much woman for this old rag dress and it's time I hit the road

My world was your attention but now I'm in another place
There's no need to spell it out you can read it off my face
Come on now don't be upset it's not like bells would chime
My world may be full of cheap regrets but you were never worth a dime

Got a fever it's rising and rising in me darling
And this fever It means now I gotta say goodbye

My world wouldn't crumble if you weren't around
It's not like the earth it rumbles every time you lay my body me down
Sugar I know you tried your best but the truth darling it just got to be told
I'm too much woman to be stuck in this mess it's time I let you go

Keeping You Happy

Written By: Bracknell / Bull / Hines / Hooper / Salvaire

One look at you and I saw empires fall
Snake charmer dictator but you make no sound at all
It's always the shy ones always the quiet kind
Looking over their shoulder trying to hide their dirty minds
Oh their dirty minds

Well I think I'm wasting all my time
'Cos keeping you happy
Keeping you happy
Keeping you happy is a full time job yeah

You're a wounded lion knickers in a twist
I'd help lick your wounds but I'm just not into this
Never thought I was a shy one but I'm dragging far behind
Running down James Street trying to keep up with your dirty mind

Well I think I'm wasting all my time
'Cos keeping you happy
Keeping you happy
Keeping you happy is a full time job yeah

It's always the shy ones always the quiet kind
Looking over their shoulder trying to hide their dirty minds

'Cos keeping you happy
Keeping you happy
Keeping you happy is a full time job yeah
