Albums Of The Week: Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard | Skinwalker

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Cardiff’s Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard return with Skinwalker, a garage-rock romp and the followup to their Welsh Music Prize-nominated debut album Backhand Deals.

Taking raw rock ‘n’ roll cues from tracks frontman Thomas Rees produced for emerging talent such as Panic Shack, Do Nothing and The Bug Club — and teased by recently released singles like Chew and Therapy — the record marks the band’s move towards a heavier and disquieting sound, inspired by Rees’ revitalised devotion to acts such as Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees and Black Sabbath.

The band — Rees, guitarist Zac White, drummer Ethan Hurst and Rees’ brother and bassist Eddie — have gone from strength-to-strength since releasing their debut EP The Non-Stop in 2020. Their frenetic live sets have seen the band make fans in tourmates from The Magic Gang to Miles Kane. They were set to support Noel Gallagher — another in a growing list of fans — at London’s Royal Albert Hall when coronavirus struck. They’ve also performed widely across the festival circuit, appearing at Glastonbury, Eurosonic, Latitude, All Points East, SXSW and Green Man, and have toured extensively.”
