Columbia Buffet make sophisticated guitar music for those who understand the relevance and power of R.E.M., The Replacements, Lemonheads, Sunny Day Real Estate and Husker Du.
The duo has just released their brand new single “Shapes” and it is another slacker pop classic waiting to happen. As a song there is some serious joy that explodes out of the speakers but the song is also haunted with all kinds of past life memories – good or bad - taking you on a journey deep into the sadness of summertime.
They may be underground heroes at the moment but with the kind of quality song writing that is demonstrated on “Shapes” be prepared to see the band crossover to a more mainstream audience.
Brisbane has a long tradition of producing bands that deal this kind of sound, where the punk / hard-core aesthetic mixes with world class song writing skills and in this year Columbia Buffet are set to race to the front of the pack. This is a band reserved for people who seriously respect music.
