OK, what you need to know about breaking Welsh quartet Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard is: they’re a lot of glam-trash fun, with a way with a solid, twelve gold bars boogie that sits right on your hips and sticks its thumbs in your johnny pockets.
They’ve shared the video for “Double Denim Hop”, a neon-framed infomercial in which the rockin’ geezers shows you the hottest of moves.
It’s the lead track from the Non-Stop EP, the vinyl of which has already sold out, but which you can still pick up digitally here.
“‘Double Denim Hop is the first song that I wrote that made true sense to me,” lead singer and songwriter Tom Rees said in a recent interview. “Everything before that had been indie bullshit!
“I had travelled up to Scotland to see a friend in an attempt to recover from an existential crisis, post-university; I had been writing a lot of awful songs and decided to take a break.
“After donning some double denim and going to a very cold barbecue on the beach the idea for the song was formed. I even made an Instagram post with the main lyric in; I think that’s what actually gave me the idea for the song, how sickeningly post-modern is that?”
The ‘rona put paid to scheduled appearances at SXSW, supporting Noel Gallagher at the Royal Albert Hall and an April tour; so the band have been busy using lockdown to lay down tracks for their debut LP at home in Cardiff.
The next question has to be: Levi or Wrangler?
