Avi Buffalo – What’s In It For?

Summer is in full swing in most places (in the northern hemisphere obviously) and there is nothing like a tune that captures the feel of summer and those long evenings. I hate to admit that i had kind of forgotten about this track and i also hate to admit that it came back to my attention via an automated Spotify playlist (ahhhhhhhh). But its an absolutely glorius track so I can live with that.

 

I am sure most will know Avi Buffalo and that he/they landed with a bit of a splash when the debut album launched back in 2010. My friend and i saw him at in store set at Rough Trade in London. the first album was great (and the second too) and todays track is an absolute beauty. Its pretty much classic indie pop – based around some great lyrics and backing vocals but in particular some beautiful, Byrds'ish guitar. I have to say that since it came back to my attention i have been hammering it non stop looking like a loon as i sing it at the top of my lungs. And its front and centre on my playlist to to soundtrack those lazy summer evenings.
