Music Review: Buffalo Bay – Said It All
Having been gigging since 2015, Buffalo Bay kicked off their upcoming set of single releases with ‘Said It All’ on 25th May. Stuart Miskelly (lead vocals and bass), D-Slide (guitar), Davey Biff (keys) and Luke O’Neill (drums) make up the Belfast quartet, who pride themselves on a creating a blend of anthemic rock and synthpop inspired by the likes of Oasis and The Killers.
On first listen, you might mistake ‘Said It All’ for an actual release from the eighties. The polished melange of keys and guitar, coupled with gruff vocals and a massive chorus, make for an all-round class track. Whilst being quite lengthy for a single – clocking in at nearly seven minutes – it doesn’t overstay its welcome. “Sometimes we might stumble / Sometimes we might fall / But it’s time we both admit / That we have said it all,” chants Miskelly, dealing with emotional themes in a way that isn’t overbearing, in a catchy, radio-friendly format.
Catch the guys supporting No Oil Paintings as part of Smörgasbord at Voodoo on 22nd June.
