Indie outfit Buffalo Sunn have returned with a brand new single and music video, Idle Man. The groups first new material since the release of their debut album By the Ocean, by the Sea, Buffalo Sunn take a distinct alternative-country tinged into their sound. A propellant beat, twanging guitars and large choruses gives ‘Idle Man’ an uplifting feel that throws hooks and melodies at you as with self-confidence and ease. Lush production and intricate songwriting are the hallmarks of Buffalo Sunns music and ‘Idle Man’ is no different.
Musician.ie says – “a magnificent single, Idle Man should be a worldwide smash, if not, there is something seriously wrong with the music industry”
The great writing and melodies of Idle Man with Americana guitars and chugging train track rhythm, pulls you right into the station. They spent months in the studio writing and recording in the Sunset Sound Recording Studios, LA, with renowned American producer, Jo Chiccarelli (8 Grammy awards; Beck, The White Strips, Morrissey). The recordings were mixed by Maxime Leguil (Radiohead, Morrissey, Hans Zimmer).
Buffalo Sunn found an enthusiastic audience for their music on their last three US tours where they played high profile shows for companies like Yahoo and Delottie, top venues at festivals including SXSW, CMJ and MUSEXPO, played at Electric Picnic for the third consecutive year and did a successful West Coast tour incorporating live shows sponsored by radio.
They were recently picked to perform at Bank Of Ireland’s ‘Backing Emerging Irish Artists’ show and had tracks from their debut album featured in adverts for General Pants Co. and Visit Dublin by Failte Ireland.
