Buffalo Summer

Buffalo Summer’s self-titled debut is a good reminder of what rock and roll is all about. It’s loud, it’s catchy and it’s not forced or overshadowed by overly complex lyrics or arrangements. The straight forward, pure rock music and choruses on this release are hard not to admire, whether or not you’re a fan of classic rock like Led Zeppelin or Southern rock ala Lynyrd Skynryd . Either way, after listening to this album you will become a fan of this band. Hailing from South Wales in the UK, Buffalo Summer is powered by Andrew Hunt on vocals, Jonny Williams on guitar, Darren King on bass and Gareth Hunt on drums. The album kicks off with the rattlesnake, “She’s All Natural,” an adrenaline induced rocker that is guaranteed to get rock and roll juices flowing in no time flat. Then you have “Down To River ” another mover, combining a hard-edged backdrop with an upbeat, sing along chorus. From there on Buffalo Summer take you a rock and roll journey that will never forget and one you’ll want to take over and over again. Numbers like, “A Horse Called Freedom”, “Rolls On Through” and “Ain’t No Other”, will make sure of that. 10 tracks total. All rockers and no fillers here that’s for sure. Buffalo Summer’s chemistry is apparent, as its members work together perfectly to create a sound that is dynamic and tight, making their self-titled debut a refreshing alternative to often self-obsessed popular and indie rock music of today. I for one cannot wait to hear and see what these rockers come up with next.
