The Boondocks are a five-piece rock band from Estonia. Drawing influences from British post-punk, guitar pop and early R’n’B, The Boondocks is a multilayered and nuanced affair. Theirs is a gritty, hard hitting, guitar-oriented rock’n’roll sound with all its rough and rebellious connotations projected against the backdrop of their polished image, pop melodies, biting wit, and laid back grooves. Flirting with old-school rock’n’roll in all its diversity and richness, The Boondocks has gained attention from listeners and critics alike.
The alternative music station Raadio 2 has prized them with both The Best New Artist award (2016) and the Album of the Year award (2018). In 2017, the band was voted as the Audience Favourite at the internationally renowned music festival Tallinn Music Week. Their 4th album "Soup Can Pop Band" was released in late 2021 and brought them the Rock Album of the Year award at Estonian Music Awards in 2022.
