Bio

Eastbound Buzz burst onto the scene in 2019 with the release of their debut EP Opportunity Shop, receiving national airplay and garnering significant attention. Centred around lead single ‘Looking for Trouble’, described as ‘a spectacular alt-country, road trip, tear-jerker’ (Nkechi Anele, Triple J), the EP introduced audiences to the Melbourne four-piece’s distinctive brand of Americana-tinged alt-rock.

Six months down the track, Eastbound Buzz have returned with a brand new single and an exciting evolution of the sound presented on Opportunity Shop. ‘Lost in the Shuffle’ marries the earthy Americana feel of the EP with synthpop and disco elements drawn from 80’s new wave and mid-2000s indie rock. Recorded at Love Shack Studios and mixed by Oscar Dawson (Holy Holy), the track’s verses bring frontman Jarryn Phegan’s emotive lyricism to the forefront, before exploding into an urgent and pulsating chorus.

While undeniably contagious on record, ‘Lost in the Shuffle’ truly comes to life in a live setting. And with a run of shows and festival slots lined up for the end of 2019, Eastbound Buzz are excited to share the new single with audiences far and wide.

Eastbound Buzz, the band from ̶M̶e̶l̶b̶o̶u̶r̶n̶e̶ New Jersey in the '70s. Authentic to its roots and I'm here for it.

I think this is a spectacular alt-country, road trip, tear-jerker. The vocals are the right balance of smooth and smokey and the band is epic. Reminds me of Big Smoke
