Bio

Like their name, it’s deceptively difficult to trace the inscrutable sound of Buckley back to its source. Deviance and derivation, vivacity and everyday tragedy; its all there. For a year and a half, Jimmy Allen and his bande à part have been plotting their vision – an aural semblance of life and listlessness in the city. Instrumentally and stylistically versatile, Buckley is a musical chameleon. They sweep you up in the reckless joy of blood-pumping indie pop, stop you in your tracks with eloquent lyrics that catch in your throat, and give your senses a good hard slap with jungle beats you can feel in your nethers, without a whiff of the stovepipe’d pretender. A hunter gatherer, opportunistic and always evolving writing and recording process has invested their music with an artless head and heart duplicity, and just a little bit of mandolin. Buckley is a band absorbing their musical landscape, giving it a talking to, and spitting out a sound that makes you feel at home, in a place you’ve never been before. www.buckleyward.com www.twitter.com/buckleyward www.facebook.com/buckleyward

Just thought it ...

Just thought it was worth stopping by and professing my pure love for this tune. The delivery of the vocals is so perfect, I think that's the part I like the most but really it's all so damn good.

Great song! There's moments where I wish the production was more gritty, but it's pretty sweet. Top work on the new album.
