MP3: Buchanan – “Teachers”
They may be brand new to the national spotlight, but Melbourne’s Buchanan craft the kinda tunes that you feel like you’ve known your whole life. The melodies flourish, the arrangements soar; the vocals seem etched in starlight. There’s magic in there, plain and simple.
Just check out the band’s first single, “Teachers”, taken from their forthcoming debut EP, ‘No Photo’ (pre-order here). This majestic little gem got them some wild Triple J love a few months back and, with its whistful harmonies and moody strings, it’s not hard to see why.
MP3: Buchanan – “Teachers [Radio Edit]“
If you’re lucky enough to be a Melbounite, it’ll be well worth emerging from your quaint laneway nest and parting with your friendly neighbourhood barista sometime this month, to catch the band as part of their Northcote Social Club residency. They’ll also be supporting fellow Unearthed up-and-comers, Tim & Jean, at The Toff In The Town.
