If you’re in need of some musical escapism, you’ll find it in Black Gold Buffalo‘s latest single ‘Pearls Deep’. Written on a stormy night in a tower block somewhere near the A10, the East London band have said the track is about “wanting to escape a brooding mood in the city, to just get up and go somewhere and nowhere.”
‘Pearls Deep’ is the first single to be taken from the band’s long-awaited debut album, which is due to be released in March 2018. The self-titled release tackles obstacles young people face growing up in London, watching a colourful and vibrant city change and becoming increasingly more expensive and bland in the process.
Although they’ve undergone line-up changes since their conception in 2012, Black Gold Buffalo are still fronted by vocalist Keziah Stillwell, with central figure in underground dance music Hannah Holland on bass and production. Guitarist Marc Hayward and percussionist Joy Joseph now complete the group. We’re hooked on the moody, atmospheric sounds of ‘Pearls Deep’, and we reckon you will be too. Listen to the track below.
