Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard Shares New Single “Yourself”

The most exciting new band to break out of Wales in recent years Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard have shared “Yourself” — a new track taken from their heavily-anticipated debut album Backhand Deals, which will be released on February 25, 2022 via Missing Piece Records / Communion. The band was also recently included in SXSW’s initial lineup announcement for the 2022 music festival. 

Speaking about “Yourself,” vocalist and guitarist Tom Rees explains: “Basically I had never realised how incapable I am of living by myself until my girlfriend Carlota went to live in Venice for three months to work at the Biennale and I found myself eating corn flakes dry out of the box for dinner, just thumbing them in my gob asking myself where it all went wrong. It’s natural to miss someone of course though I think I took it to new heights.”

He adds: “This one’s about my reluctance to let in about those feelings to her though, big ‘naaaah I’m totally fine I’m doing great!’ vibes, real male-engrained-denial-of-true-feelings vibes, I didn’t think I was capable of that until this all happened so it’s good to know I’m just as dysfunctional as everyone else. Not to mention I think it’s still potentially problematic that the first time I had a real go at writing a love song it was kind of all about me anyway, go figure.”“Yourself” follows the album’s lead single “You” and album cuts “Crescent Man vs Demolition Dan” and “New Age Millennial Magic.”
