The Buoys

Sydney band The Buoys have one last little treat for fans before the release of their new EP All This Talking Gets Us Nowhere, on July 10th. The band have now shared some brand new visuals for their latest single ‘Linda’, which is an anthem for anyone who has ever had a gutful of their boss.

The Buoys deliver no-frills rock with ‘Linda’, pairing relatable songwriting with powerful, blistering guitars and thundering drums to get straight down to business. They aren’t messing around, and they have no time for your bullshit. Keeping things simple dressed entirely in white with a sparse background, the band do what they do best in this clip and simply perform the hell out of their song. Letting their music do the talking for them, they hold nothing back and just let ‘er rip, allowing the viewer to experience all that The Buoys have to offer. Considering they were nominated for Best Live Act at this year’s FBi SMAC Awards, they certainly live up to this hype here.

Speaking about the single, Zoe Catterall (guitar and vocals) said of the song, “Linda is for anyone who’s had a shit boss. After being yelled at and begrudgingly working somewhere just so I could afford rent, I wrote Linda and quit.” All This Talking Gets Us Nowhere is the second EP from The Buoys, following 2017’s self-released Soft Boy.
In making the EP, Zoe stresses the importance of working with a diverse crew of people. “There are so many talented women/non-binary/trans people in the arts and we really wanted to do our best to showcase this,” she says. “We recorded the body of work with Antonia Gauci, a music mastermind, and continue to work with an amazing photographer April Josie who even pieces together the clip for ‘WAH’. Speaking of clips we‘ve worked extensively with Director Clover Ryan who always puts together a diverse team, she worked on ‘Inside Outside’ and ‘Gold’. The glue that keeps it all together is our amazing manager Nat Day.”

The four piece have gone from strength to strength lately, with pre-COVID support slots for the likes of Violent Soho and Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, as well as sets at Farmer & The Owl and Grampians Festival. Now, with All This Talking Gets Us Nowhere about to be released into the world, the band are making waves for all the right reasons and we cannot get enough. Let’s hear it for The Buoys!

“All This Talk Is Getting Us Nowhere” is out July 10th Released Through Spunk Records.

The Buoys are giving us some real gig envy with their seventh new single “WAH” and its cathartic music video. The track is our first taste of their upcoming EP All This Talking Gets Us Nowhere (out July 10).

Making the most of the COVID-19 restrictions this punk-fuelled group of girls combined some of their favourite snippets from the recent festival season to present the track to us, whilst we impatiently wait for the world to press play on live music again. WAH is one of their many of their belters .  Vocalist Zoe Catterall sums up the track with her words: “WAH speaks to the fact that capitalist ideology is why we’re told we can do anything whilst also being the largest obstacle in reaching whatever success we desire.” Catterall’s to-the-point chorus line sums up her statement perfectly well with the bellowed lyrics, “I don’t want to just be another number/ I don’t want to just be a part of you” and it’s seriously edgy.

But if the girls’ chaotic anthem-like vibe isn’t for you, skip forward to 1:10 to hear guitarist Hilary Geddes making her mark in the track with an absolutely beautiful breakdown – if you’re needing just a little bit of a time out. It’s an ultimate highlight of the track which completely changes its mood for about 18 seconds before returning quickly to some familiar quick and shouty words to close it off. It may be a little bit loud for the bedroom, but we can’t wait to be amongst the crowd for this one.

Video for “WAH” shot across various shows at the end of 2019/start of 2020 by April Josie. Edited by April Josie. Locations include Festival of the Sun, Farmer and the Owl, Fairgrounds, Party in the Paddock, Taronga Zoo. The Buoys single “WAH” out now via Spunk Records
