Buffalo Sunn incorporate sounds from the 60’s right up to the present day, mixing big reverb-laden harmonies with carefully placed guitars to take the listener on an epic journey through their songs.
After months spent in the studio rehearsing, writing, and recording in Sunset Sound Recording Studios, Los Angeles, with renowned American producer Joe Chiccarelli (recipient of no fewer than 8 Grammy awards, and noted for his work with My Morning Jacket, Beck, The White Stripes and Morrissey), Buffalo Sunn are back with a brand new single 'Idle Man'. Having recently played Electric Picnic for the third consecutive year, they play Whelan’s Saturday November 5th.
The five piece comprises of songwriter, Daniel Paxton (vocals, guitar), Conor Paxton (bass, synthesiser),
Patrick McHugh (guitar, vocals), Nathan Maher (guitar, keys, vocals) and Aidan O’Grady (drums).
Guesting on the LA recordings Victor Indrizzo on drums (Beck, Depeche Mode) and Doug Pettibone on pedal steel (John Mayer, Lucinda Williams). The recordings were mixed by Maxime Leguil (Radiohead,
Morrissey, Hans Zimmer).
Buffalo Sunn found an enthusiastic audience for their music on their recent three US tours, where they played high profile shows for companies such as Yahoo and Delottie, top venues at festivals including SXSW, CMJ and MUSEXPO, as well as a very successful West Coast tour which incorporated live shows sponsored by radio stations (Radio 94.7 Sacramento and 94/7fm Alternative Portland), several of which invited them to record studio sessions, and gave huge support to their single, By Your Side. They attracted high level interest from US industry at their MUSEXPO showcases. Music from their debut album, By The Ocean, By The Sea, is featured in an Australian advert for leading clothing company General Pants Co. and Visit Dublin advert by Fáilte Ireland. They are one of the artists picked to perform at Bank of Ireland’s ‘backing emerging Irish artists’.
"A strong intuitive sense of US West Coast music’ - Irish Times
“Idle Man is one of those encompassing songs. With its Americana guitars and chugging train track rhythm, it just pulls you along the tracks and right into the station.” –Musician.ie
“Stitching a ‘Boys of Summer’-ish back-beat together with countrified pedal steel guitars, the sun kissed number sees the quintet in vintage form. It’s the perfect sonic tonic if you’ve got a dose of the winter blues.” -Hot Press
“Accessible and warm, ‘By The Ocean, By The Sea’ is the first step in a what will surely be a bright career for Buffalo Sunn” – GoldenPlec
