Anyone wanna go flower-picking?

Hot off their biggest year yet, The Buoys have found the time to squeeze in one more single for our earholes, and its one of their most impressive tracks yet. Titled ‘Settle Petal’, the new number is a gentle slow burn that builds and builds throughout its three minute runtime, utilising skeletal instrumental lines in the opening verse to full power hour guitars, drums and orchestration.

It’s a cut that dips its toes in both the ballad and indie thumper pools that The Buoys have become synonymous with over the years and adds another side to their ever-growing artistry.

Speaking on the inspiration behind the new single, the band explains, “‘Much like a rose, with soft plush petals, and thorns that prick you when you least expect it, ‘Settle Petal’ has a lot of fun twists and turns. In a nutshell this song encapsulates the frustration of trying to squeeze the truth out of someone.”

It’s clear that the Inner West four-piece have perfected their sound and are on a one-way track to superstardom. So, it’s fitting that they be our Boost Artist of the Week. Check out ‘Settle Petal’ above and be sure to buy/stream it here.
