“I’d be excited for the opening of a packet of crisps let alone a festival”
We spoke to Cardiff’s Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard about the prospect of Truck Festival 2021, their current earworms and their incredible new single!
It has been an interesting 12 months for us all, but the glam rock quartet have continued to pump out wonderful 70’s inspired bops with a undoubtable hunger to return to the live stage
“I think with everything going on I’d be excited for the opening of a packet of crisps let alone a festival” says lead singer Tom Rees, “I attended when I was a young man and absolutely adored it – just the idea of getting out there again is tantalising let alone at Truck Festival”
Last year they released their catchy 10-song-album-length EP ‘Non-Stop‘, described by DIY as “all of music’s current trends together and then found the exact antithesis of them.” But now back with ‘New Age Millennial Magic’, a tongue-in-cheek view on current affairs and fickleness of millennials.
“It’s kind of just about accepting yourself for that” Rees says, “I don’t think enough people accept the fact that it’s a human right to be dysfunctional, the rising wave of virtue swallows us all!”
Buzzard x3 have collated over an hours worth of their influences and Truck Favourites which you can check out below!
“I kind of just added tracks stream of consciousness style, though when I finished I realised I had paved a path from our cleanest 70’s pop number through to our heaviest 70’s rock number” Tom says, “for some reason I was thinking of driving the whole time, maybe the name Truck Festival just evoked that in me???”
“It moves from some hot new numbers I discovered like ‘It Never Rains in Southern California’ through to some Rainbow track and then ends up like most things, at Black Sabbath.”
But apart from themselves obviously, Tom gives us some tips on who to check out in July!
“I’m really excited to see Little Simz and for my sins I have never seen Sports Team, so I’d love to watch them too, our friends Do Nothing are playing as well, and I know for a fact that they’re the best band in the world, so I’m excited for that, too.”
