The guys in Young Buffalo
are getting ready to play a slew of shows during CMJ, and to kick off their NYC takeover, Baeble is premiering a live version video of their first single, "Sykia."
Shot in black and white, the video spotlights their ability to sound just as good, if not better than a mastered album.
About "Sykia," Jim Barrett tells Baeble, "This song is about a coastal village in Greece I visited as a freshman in college. It was a really memorable place, completely self-sufficient and I'd never seen anything quite like it. This song's about that, but as a metaphor mostly."
Aside from playing CMJ, the Oxford, Mississippi five-piece are looking forward to dropping their new album, produced by Dave Schiffman (Weezer, Haim), in Feb. 2015. In the meantime, you can catch them in the Big Apple at the following dates and check out the video below.
