BUFFALO BAY


"SAID IT ALL"


By Andrew Goodwin for NEW MUSIC EAR www.newmusicear.com.

SUMMARY - Belfast foursome Stuart Miskelly (vocals/bass), David "D-Slide" Ferris (guitar), Davey Biff (keys) and Luke O'Neill (drums) make up the Indie Rock band Buffalo Bay.  Since writing songs and performing together since 2015 they plan to release a set of singles over the next few months.  After hearing "Here Inside", the previous single this brand new song "Said It All" is vastly different.  From sounding a little like a version of Cast and those 90s Liverpool bands they have entered a new dimension of anthemic Indie Rock with a little 80s twist and a modern feel not too distant from The Killers and the late 90s Scottish melodious Rock of Texas and Del Amitri.  Honing their creative talent in their sunhouse, recording demos and playing live this band one to watch out for.


"SAID IT ALL" - This track comes in an epic portion at 6 minutes 58 seconds but it is a memorable track and will stick in your head long after you've heard it.  It has an almost 80s feel with that modern twist I mentioned in the summary.  The vocals remind me of Andy "Greedy" Smith from the Aussie New Wave band Mental As Anything who had  a hit in 1985 with "Live It Up".  These gruff vocals perfectly intertwine with the almost melancholic but uplifting melodies.  The song opens with a fabulous slide guitar intro which hints at Country Blues styles and the twangy Rock Pop of Texas.   There is an awesome searing guitar segment at around the 4 minute mark which is a great Classic Rock/Country hybrid.  This Indie Rock ballad track has an anthemic catchy chorus which is repeated a few times but it doesn't detract from the whole feel of the track which is crafted superbly to make it an inspiring listen.  At almost 7 minutes it may be tough to be heard on the most popular music stations (this used to annoy me when they played "Purple Rain" and cut it off just before the best guitar solo ever at the end!).  However, it is a great listen and if you check their Soundcloud page (as the band have only just relased it they don't have a video as yet) you can hear the track for yourself.
