Watch our interview with The Buoys below!
Sydney four-piece The Buoys have dropped the video for Drive Me Home, taken from their debut EP, Unsolicited Advice For Your DIY Disaster. Filmed down the coast in front woman Zoe Catterall's hometown, the visual captures the camaraderie of friendship and the comfort you find in loved ones post-breakup.
"It’s pretty rare that we get time off at the same time as a band, going to my Mum’s place all together in my hometown of Woronora is such a special time. We piled 3 blow up beds into one room like a primary school sleepover, playing guitar and drinking tea on the water. It’s not a trip to the Wonni without getting brekky at the boat shed and a beer at the RSL. I find so much joy in driving the girls around in my boat and showing them all the places I used to play as a kid. There’s something about being home that makes you feel safe, and I feel like that really ties in with 'Drive Me Home', it’s a big warm hug of “everything’s gonna be alright"."
Frejya Fox adds, "I had the pleasure to witness the pure joy, chaotic charm & a love that runs deep between The Buoys while shooting them for the Drive Me Home music video at Zoe's childhood hometown. It was super special to be able to capture them in their element just doing their thing & being frivolous & having fun away from the city with one another. The song felt to me like it was about being in a state of transit - between relationships & also being in actual transit & so we spent the whole weekend speeding around with Zoe as our captain. I loved the opportunity to be a fly on the wall for the weekend & watch them literally relish each other's company."
Last week, the band announced their 2022 east coast tour, alongside the news of their signing to booking agency Village Sounds (DMA’s, Courtney Barnett, Vance Joy) and management deal with Arcadia Music Company (CYRUS, MAY-A, and ROYBOY).
Kicking off at the Oxford Art Factory in Eora/Sydney on March 12, the run of shows will continue on to the Black Bear Lodge Meeanjin/Brisbane, before wrapping up in at The Night Cat in Naarm/Melbourne. The Buoys are also set to appear at King Street Carnival in January, and Yours & Owls Festival in April.
