Oxford, Miss. duo Young Buffalo recently released a self-titled EP on Votiv Records. The band, which combines afro-beat and indie elements, has been playing and recording sporadically since emerging from the University of Mississippi’s music scene in 2009. Their latest effort marks a step toward maturity and a more cohesive sound.
“Two years ago I would’ve [said] we’re going to win Grammys and
tour the world,” notes member Jim Barrett. “Now that’s just bullshit. I just want to be able to tour and make records. Anything else is a bonus. I just want an excuse not to be
a caterer full time.”
One of their new EP’s standout tracks is “Upstairs,” the video for which we’re proud to premiere for you below.
