Bark Bark Disco is a band from the island of Malta and Berlin that formed in August 2011. Their debut concert was with Bonnie Prince Billy in a masonic cemetery in Valletta.

Their debut video for their single "Song for the Lovers" was a tribute to 1970s porn star Brigitte Lahaie, and was taken from Erwin Dietrich's classic film Six Swedish Girls in a Boarding School. It received half a million views on YouTube in under two weeks.

Bark Bark Disco are part of the So Lo-Fi music movement. The band had originally defined their sound as "bedroom new wave", mainly because their unofficial debut LP, Your Mum Says Hello!, was recorded entirely in their bedroom.

Bark Bark Disco's main singer songwriter Ian Schranz, also forms part of the indie-rock groups Beangrowers and The Shh.

Recent collaboration work includes amongst others Andre Herman Dune aka Stanley Brinks, Jeffrey Lewis and Alison Galea Beangrowers on the Get Out Of My Songs, EP.
