Bumblebees first album «Dancing Dots in the Dark»

We are Bumblebees, a neo-psychedelia/dream pop band from Zürich, Switzerland. Two years after our previous record, the EP «Pollination», and many live adventures, we are ready to release our brand new album «Dancing Dots in the Dark», recorded and produced during the summer and autumn of 2018. The album is composed of 10 original tracks, spacing from dreamy pop vibes to powerful fuzzy sound and will be released via the Swiss label Radicalis on the 17th of May 2019, both as CD and vinyl. Also, during summer 2019 we will promote our music and new record with a series of live concerts across Switzerland.

Who are the Bumblebees?

Bumblebees is a project born at the end of 2015 from a group of 5 friends all living and studying in Zürich, Switzerland. From that moment on, trough live concerts and our first EP «Pollination», we obtained many achievements and positive critics, both from crowds and expert juries. With this new LP we want to reach new crowds and stages, as well as our loyal fans, with our dreamy sounds.

Why do we need your help?

We developed and recorded the album - containing 10 original songs - during the summer of 2018 in our studio in Zürich. Later, this was mixed by Yvan Bing in the «Kitchen Studio» in Geneva. Meanwhile, an artwork and graphics were also commissioned for this album in collaboration with a Berlin artist named Kevin Lucbert.

Now we need your generosity to cover part of the expenses for this project, regarding particularly the mixing, printing and promotion.
