One of Australia’s most exciting, punk-fuelled bands, The Buoys, have unveiled a video for their frenetic new single WAH. A montage of live and backstage footage of the Sydney outfit, the clip will no doubt make you long for the return of live music.
“For us, the best part about being in a band is the touring, the funny things we do on and off stage and WAH is a nice celebration of that,” says lead singer and guitarist Zoe Catterall.
Shot and edited by April Josie, the clip for WAH features footage from Farmer and the Owl, Festival of the Sun, Fairgrounds, Party in the Paddock and Twilight at Taronga, as well as a cheeky glimpse behind the scenes filmed by bassist Courtney Cunningham.
“We were prepping for WAH in the midst of the toughest COVID restrictions so a film clip was off the cards,” says Zoe. “What resulted is a fun snapshot of our 2019/20 festival season, plenty of crowd shots for people to Where’s Wally themselves.”
WAH is a cathartic belter tackling capitalist ideology and millennial ennui in just under 2 minutes. Zoe says of the track, “WAH” speaks to the fact that capitalist ideology is why we’re told we can do anything whilst also being the largest obstacle in reaching whatever success we desire.”
