Meet the U.K. buzz band of the week: Cardiff’s big, bold and brash brother-led ensemble Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard. They call their debut release an EP, but it actually sports 10 tracks and lasts over 30 minutes. Back in the ’60s and ’70s, we would have called that an album. Fittingly enough, most of these crunchy little nuggets of glam-rock majesty sound like they come straight from the ’60s or ’70s catalogues of T.Rex, Mott, Bowie and the like. You’re going to want to catch this buzz.
THE PRESS RELEASE: “Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard began as a bedroom studio project for Cardiff-based Tom Rees, before eventually spreading his wings alongside bassist brother Eddie Rees, guitarist Zac White and drummer Ethan Hurst. The band aired their debut single Double Denim Hop in 2018 to widespread acclaim. A BBC Radio spin from none other than Iggy Pop and a live session on the same station followed at the beginning of 2019. Subsequent singles Late Night City and Love Forever drew further airplay. The band also landed a slot at Glastonbury courtesy of BBC Introducing.”
