Buffalo Sunn Release New Single “The Long Road”

Following on from the worldwide airplay of ‘Idle Man’, ‘The Long Road’ is the second single taken from Buffalo Sunn’s recording session with multi Grammy award winning producer Joe Chiccarelli (Beck, My Morning Jacket, Jack White, and currently recording again with Morrissey ) last year in the renowned Sunset Sound studios, Los Angeles.

It’s a beautiful slice of Americana served up in just over 3 minutes with lush strings, gorgeous backing vocals and pedal steel guitar, and wouldn’t be out of place in David Lynch’s classic ‘Paris, Texas’.

Buffalo Sunn consists of two Paxton brothers, songwriter Daniel on vocals and guitar and younger brother Conor on bass, with Patrick McHugh on guitar and B/Vs, and Nathan Maher on guitar/keys and BVs, while guesting with the band on the LA recordings are Doug Pettibone on pedal steel, (John Mayer, Sting, Lucinda Williams etc), and drummer Victor Indrizzo, who has plays with the likes of Beck and Depeche Mode, Sheyrl Crow and Willie Nelson. The recordings are mixed by Maxime Leguil (Morrissey, Hans Zimmer).

Buffalo Sunn’s album, ‘By The Ocean By The Sea’ (produced by Grammy award winner Pat McCarthy – 5 R.E.M albums, Lou Reed and Madonna among many others) debuted in the Irish charts at No 14, and tracks from the album enjoyed significant airplay abroad too, being heavily rotated on stations such as Sacramento RADIO 94.7 in California and Portland, and the band played a very successful West Coast tour from Phoenix, Los Angeles through Portland to Seattle taking in radio stations along the way where they were invited to play live shows to invited audiences.

Grab a beer, kick your shoes off and settle down to the to the sounds of these Dublin boys with a taste for the Mid West.

Praise for Idle Man

Hot Press (IE)

Stitching together a ‘Boys of Summer’-ish back-beat together with countrified pedal steel guitars, the sun-kissed number sees Buffalo Sunn in vintage form. It’s the perfect sonic tonic if you’ve got a dose of the winter blues.

50Thirdand3rd (US)

A fetching and sparkling Americana symphony obviously inspired, musically, by the sunlit place where it was recorded. So lively, so upbeat, and so richly colored with crystal-clear Byrds harmonies that you almost forget Idle Man isn’t a happy dude at all.

Source Music (AUS)

Lush production and intricate songwriting are hallmarks of Buffalo Sunn’s music and ‘Idle Man’ is no different.

The Long Road will be released on August 26th.
