In the words of band member Luke Panic, Sydney-based outfit The Buffalo Grass Boys are ‘a bunch of dudes who like playing music and singing songs and creating art to go with our music’. So it is that for their new single, ‘Daydream’, they have released some art along with the song.
The band collaborated with Giedre Domzaite, a freelance animator and art director based in Sydney, and gave her free rein to create whatever she liked to accompany the song. The result is a video that is worth watching multiple times – so it’s just as well that the song is worth multiple listens too. It’s a song about melancholy with a driving rhythm that suggests that getting past that melancholy is the goal – and the way through is honesty.
