Welsh four-piece Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard have shared their new single ‘Double Denim Hop’ via Communion Records.

Premiered by Steve Lamacq on his BBC Radio 6 Music show, the new single was written by frontman and guitarist Tom Rees shortly after moving back to his hometown Barry after finishing university and “just bathing in melodrama as I worked out what I was going to do with the rest of my life like any other straight edge 21 year old who should have maybe spent a couple more years partying, just to loosen up a little.” For new friends and rockers, this song is our pride and joy, really the formation of us. For long time rockers, we’ve created a disco version too, to keep your feet moving, with a hot new vid shot by us in isolation,

The original track and a new disco version of ‘Double Denim Hop’ are both out now.

“I went on a real big disco trip when I was 18/19, I actually played in a disco band called Chronic Strut at that time too which I had completely forgotten about until right this second,” Rees adds on the dancefloor version. “This journey through disco offered a bit of a fresh perspective on the ‘70s rock vibe, just because it seemed to be a bit more energetic and above all, positive. Listening to a lot of early ‘70s Lennon can really make you cynical and bitter, so it’s good to have some Kool and the Gang to balance it out, plus with K and the G you get to go outside and dance with other people, as opposed to crying for John Lennon alone in your bedroom.”
