WOW. Yes, Melbourne outfit Buchanan are not only deserving of the word, but they’re deserving of it in capital letters, simply because their new single ‘Living A Lie’ is so preposterously good.
Premiered recently on Triple J and co-written and produced by London’s Simon Duffy (one of the men behind Planet Funk’s sublime ‘Chase The Sun’), ‘Living A Lie’ is like a cool glass of spritzer with a slice of lemon and a mint leaf garnish; refreshing, zesty and, if you’ve been on the fruitless hunt for some seriously sublime summer grooves, utterly thirst-quenching.
We don’t quite know why they refer to themselves as “alt-indie”, because in a perfect Aussie world, this would just be considered the mainstream and it’d be blanketing radio airwaves across the country.
Speaking of across the country, the band has announced a handful of tour dates in support of the single (and EP of the same name), kicking off in Wollongong on February 04.
February 04 : Wollongong (Rad Bar)
February 05 : Sydney (The Vic)
February 06 : Manly (Moonshine)
February 12 : Melbourne (Workers Club)
February 20 : Brisbane (The Foundry)
