Young Buffalo Share
“My Place” Music Video
On Tour Now with Matt Pond
Debut Full-Length Album House Out Now
Young Buffalo have now released their new music video for the single “My Place.” The video premiered on Clash Music who have described it as being filled with “all bright colours, soaring vocals, and choppy riffs.” Be sure to watch and share “ My Place” on YouTube and check out Young Buffalo’s tour dates below.
There’s nothing typical about the Oxford, Mississippi-based rock act Young Buffalo. Although the group’s songwriters Ben Yarbrough and Jim Barrett didn’t begin playing under the Young Buffalo moniker until 2009, they started writing music together as teenagers and never ceased evolving. The band—which now also features drummer Tim Burkhead, bassist Andrew Guinn and keyboardist Will Eubanks—couldn’t be more excited to share House, an 11-track album produced by Dave Schiffman (Haim, Weezer) that establishes the five-piece act as a band that’s as unique as the town where they were conceived.
House showcases the varying personalities of the band members perfectly. From the shimmering pop of “No Idea” to harmony-rich anthems like “Black Eye” and breezy energy of “Old Soul,” the songs on House see Young Buffalo embracing their pop roots while expanding the arrangements. They fill out the instrumentation with singing synth lines and unique syncopation that propel these songs into uncharted territory. In keeping with the ongoing theme, the album may contain some dark subject matter but it’s always presented in a way that’s inherently relatable and heartfelt. Riding that line between straight ahead pop music and tastefully weird indie rock.
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.
Be sure to catch them on tour with Matt Pond now.
