Young Buffalo Release Brian Eno Cover and New Video for Track "Sykia"

Young Buffalo Cover Brian Eno’s Classic Track
“Burning Airlines Give You So Much More

Release New Video For “Sykia”

Young Buffalo reveal a modern pop-indie twist to a classic Brian Eno track.  Listen to the band cover “Burning Airlines Gives You So Much More” HERE, and courtesy of Consequence of Sound, who described Young Buffalo’s interpretation of the track as “… retains the obscurity of Eno’s original, but with even more reckless abandon”.  The band is releasing the track as a 10-inch, Brain One, on September 30th.  Young Buffalo also just debuted a new video for their single, “Sykia” off their upcoming February 2015 album on Votiv.  Watch and share here.
There's nothing typical about the Oxford, Mississippi-based rock act Young Buffalo. Although the group's songwriters Ben Yarbrough and Jim Barrett didn't begin playing under the Young Buffalo moniker until 2009, they started writing music together as teenagers and never ceased evolving. The band—which now also features drummer Tim Burkhead, bassist Andrew Guinn and keyboardist Will Eubanks. 
Young Buffalo rides a line between straight ahead pop music and tasteful indie rock.  They fill out the instrumentation with singing synth lines and unique syncopation. The song is off their 11- track album produced by Dave Schiffman (Haim, Weezer), out early next year.  This new record establishes the five-piece act as a band that’s as unique as the town where they were conceived.
“Oxford has been a literary town basically since William Faulkner was around.  Authors like Larry Brown, Barry Hannah, Tom Franklin, Jack Pendarvis, and a slew of other literary greats called or still call Oxford home.  With the writing comes painting, and then hand in hand-- the music,“ Barrett explains.
With the good fortune of these five gentlemen being birthed in such a fantastically diverse city, both artistically and culturally, we are just thankful they decided to follow their musical hearts and form Young Buffalo. They are no doubt on their way to establishing themselves as one of indie rock's brightest hopes.
