Young Buffalo – “Catapilah”
Young Buffalo may be the best Brit rock band to ever come out of Oxford, Mississippi. True to their name, the band is actually young (20-22) and that freshman energy works in their favor on their debut EP Young Von Prettylips. Young Buffalo have a dense pop sound with surprisingly effective harmonies, like what Fleet Foxes would sound like in some alternate rock universe. For this style of music, Young Buffalo are actually pretty experimental, taking detours both rhythmically and melodically to great results. Be on the lookout for this potential breakout band this year; I get the feeling this will be a big year for Young Buffalo.
