On the track “Sykia”, Young Buffalo rides a line between straight ahead pop music and tasteful indie rock. They fill out the instrumentation with singing synth lines and unique syncopation. The song is off their 11- track album produced by Dave Schiffman (Haim, Weezer), out early next year. This new record establishes the five-piece act as a band that’s as unique as the town where they were conceived.
“Oxford has been a literary town basically since William Faulkner was around. Authors like Larry Brown, Barry Hannah, Tom Franklin, Jack Pendarvis, and a slew of other literary greats called or still call Oxford home. With the writing comes painting, and then hand in hand– the music,“ Barrett explains.
With the good fortune of these five gentlemen being birthed in such a fantastically diverse city, both artistically and culturally, we are just thankful they decided to follow their musical hearts and form Young Buffalo. They are no doubt on their way to establishing themselves as one of indie rock’s brightest hopes.
