“Your mind will fester and your head will roll” sings Black Gold Buffalo‘s front woman Keziah Stillwell on new single ‘Lay It Down,’ a song she wrote about overcoming anxiety. It’s a well-crafted, slow-burning, beautiful track that proves this band are ready for big things in 2018.
‘Lay It Down’ follows the group’s previous single ‘Pearls Deep’, and both tracks are taken from their long awaited debut album, set to be released on 6th April, via their own Buff Rekkids label. The self-titled collection of brooding, dark pop gems is largely about wanting to escape the city, “to get up and go somewhere and nowhere”.
The band’s ethos is totally DIY – “We run our own label, we make our own art, and we call on friends to make vides and remixes” – and that’s something we’re more than happy to support here at Get In Her Ears. We’re hooked on Black Gold Buffalo’s mesmerising, alternative sounds, and after you’ve listened to ‘Lay It Down’, you will be too.
