Bio

Coming off a massive 12 months in which they were included in the BIGSOUND50, toured nationally with Shannen James, and shared the stage with the likes of Ash Grunwald and Nathan Cavaleri, Eastbound Buzz are back in a big way with new single ‘DRAG’. With mixing and additional production by Peter Holz (Gang of Youths, Vance Joy, Peking Duk), ‘DRAG’ sees the Melbourne-via-Wagga four-piece at their most triumphant and uplifting. Atmospheric instrumentation and the evocative lyrics ascend into a soaring climax, reminiscent of the best arena rock of days gone by.

Eastbound Buzz arrived on the scene in 2019 as a force to be reckoned with
both live and on record, with 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.

Since then, Eastbound Buzz have gone from strength to strength, building a legion of dedicated fans through their craftsmanlike songwriting and energetic live sets, selling out shows in their adopted home of Melbourne, and bringing their renowned live performances to cities and regional areas across Australia’s East Coast. As the first taste of their upcoming second EP, ‘DRAG’ reaffirms Eastbound Buzz’s status as one of the best emerging rock bands in Australia, and will fill fans with excitement for what’s to come.

Easboutnd Buzz return with another shot of their reliably rousing working class indie rock. How can you not get swept up in the compelling heartland emotion of this.

So much heart and rough rumbly charm to this song; you wear your influences on your sleeve but execute it so well. Love the bridge. Beautiful stuff.
