Bonfire Buffalo – Back In School

Bonfire Buffalo is a 3 piece Indie Pop/Rock band from eMalahleni (Witbank) in South Africa. “Back In School” is their debut EP and was recorded at Openroom Productions with producer Greg Carlin (Zebra & Giraffe). The diverse set of sounds tackled on their debut release sees the band drawing from influences as diverse as Blondie, The Temper Trap, Metric and The Naked And Famous. The title track and debut single “ Back In School is pure Pop Rock, laden with guitar stabs reminiscent of The Police, that fall alongside synth lines that wouldn’t be out of place on a Killers record. “Firefly” simplifies things and draws on Indie Rock influences like Metric and Yeah Yeah Yeahs, whilst “A Little Sunshine” takes things all the way down, drawing sonic inspiration from NIN “Hurt”, contrasting this with positive and inspirational lyrics. The EP also features a bonus acoustic track called “Vikings” recorded live.
