Young Buffalo reveal a modern pop-indie twist to a classic Brian Eno track. Listen to the band cover “Burning Airlines Gives You So Much More” The band is releasing the track as a 10-inch, Brain One, on September 30. Young Buffalo also just debuted a new video for their single, “Sykia” off their upcoming February 2015 album on Votiv.
There’s nothing typical about the Oxford, Mississippi-based rock act Young Buffalo. Although the group’s songwriters Ben Yarbrough and Jim Barrett didn’t begin playing under the Young Buffalo moniker until 2009, they started writing music together as teenagers and never ceased evolving. The band—which now also features drummer Tim Burkhead, bassist Andrew Guinn and keyboardist Will Eubanks.
The song is off their 11- track album produced by Dave Schiffman (Haim, Weezer), out early next year. The record was partially inspired by the town where they were conceived.
“Oxford has been a literary town basically since William Faulkner was around. Authors like Larry Brown, Barry Hannah, Tom Franklin, Jack Pendarvis, and a slew of other literary greats called or still call Oxford home. With the writing comes painting, and then hand in hand– the music,“ Barrett explains.
