Building upon a wealth of musical influences and time spent developing and honing their artistry, Byron Bay trio The Buckleys present their debut album in Daydream. Released today (via Petrol Records/Universal Records/UMe), Daydream is the culmination of three young lives that have lived and breathed music, now striding out and embracing their own sonic identity.
A fusion of Country, Pop, Americana and Indie, Daydream is a sun-kissed collection of music that embodies the personalities and spirit of the Buckley siblings – Sarah (20), Molly (17) and Lachlan (19).
Produced and engineered by multi Grammy Award winner Chad Carlson (Taylor Swift, Trisha Yearwood), Daydream has already produced four Top 10 Australian Country Airplay charting singles: Daydream (#1), I’m Comin’ For Ya (Love), (#3), Money (#2) and Breathe (#3). The success of these singles has been felt not just on Australian soil, but internationally too, with multiple playlist nods across Spotify, Apple Music, VEVO and Radio Disney Country in the USA.
The warmth and richness within The Buckleys’ song writing chops extends throughout the whole Daydream record too, fitting brilliantly within the resurgence of young Country music artists pushing their music further into the mainstream.
Harmonically strong, the Buckley siblings feed off each other’s creative energy, building upon warm guitars and timeless lyricism to produce a fresh sound. Daydream flits between moments of romantic nostalgia (Glad You Did) and fun groove-driven hooks (Vibe, Feeling The Love); dabbling in strong Country energies (Crazy Like You, Wild Honey) and more contemporary Americana-flecked pop (Til You Can’t Go Back, Breathe).
Working with an impressive line-up of established country writers, including Emily Shackleton (Carly Peace), JT Harding (Blake Shelton, Keith Urban), Marty Dodson (Kenny Chesney) and Jennifer Hanson (Billy Currington), Daydream draws on the siblings’ tight family roots and their natural ability to write memorable melodies and hooks.
Becoming a formidable force in the U.S. recently, The Buckleys have been establishing themselves as a young, dynamic act to watch. Their recent U.S. highlights have included a recent performance on The ACM Weekly (Academy of Country Music), as well as rotation adds to Radio Disney Country (I’m Comin’ For Ya (Love)) and CMT Music USA (Breathe).
Globally, The Buckleys have penetrated each continent with their groundbreaking virtual tour this year, achieving a ‘virtual reach’ of over 4.5 million. Their virtual world tour was developed in conjunction with Live Nation, band’s record label Petrol Records and US label, UMe.
Purveyors of what they call “Hippie Country”, a genre representing the infectious personality and spirited consciousness of the band maintains through these tough times, these three young artists have received widespread transcontinental praise in the media for their refreshingly exciting brand of rootsy pop.
