‘So Pretend’ (mp3)
A coasty slice of indie-pop from Melb 5 piece Buckley Ward. Clean harmonies + chilled percussion; this is a modest track that sounds good without trying too hard. Cruisy vibes and the airy arrangement here makes this a nice prelude to the warmer months. Some ‘jungle’ dabblings at the bridge, but here’s hoping this stays an ‘ugly dancing’/navaho hat free zone in the future.
