Buffalo Sunn have gained a reputation for being a formidable live band, noted for their three part vocal harmonies, with inventive guitar and percussion. Channeling that West Coast sound 'like a punked up Crosby Stills and Nash' (as one Asian journalist noted ) they mix melody and guitar attack with superb effect, with songwriter, guitarist and vocalist Daniel Paxton masterminding the band’s sound superbly.
They have opened for a host of international acts under their previous moniker Sweet Jane,including Suede, A Place To Bury Strangers, The Besnard Lakes, and Glasvegas. Now, with their harmony drenched sound Buffalo Sunn are no strangers to the festival circuit having played CMJ, Music Matters in Singapore, and Hardworking Class Heroes as well as performing at Ireland’s biggest festivals Oxegen and Electric Picnic.
"By The Ocean By The Sea” was released in Germany, Austria and Switzerland on 30th January via Rough Trade Distribution/Brainstorm. On 6th February they embarked on a six date tour of Germany to promote the release.
In March Buffalo Sunn toured the US West Coast for the first time on the A+R Worldwide 'Passport Approved’ tour, en route to SXSW where they played several shows. They returned to the US in April to play the Musexpo industry event in LA.
