Buckley Ward’s new track Into the Darkening Blue, is the second release from their upcoming album So Pretend. Nonchalantly precise harmonies and unabashed melodies swell in testament to Buckley Ward’s versatility and previously unsuspected dance-ability. Jimmy Allen’s plaintive vocals are a come-hither wink over a bed of guitar and keyboards – a promise of guiltless goodtimes to get your heart racing.
And this Buckley Ward adventure doesn’t stop at auditory exploits. Into the Darkening Blue will come complete with a chiller thriller video clip with a killer twist.
Buckley’s first single and title track So Pretend garnered widespread success on community radio nationally, as well as a bucketload of interest from the local and international blogosphere.
In a fitting follow-up to their freshman single, the five-piece signed to Shock and were handpicked to support some amazing Aussie talent. Sharing bills with Howling Bells, Oh Mercy, Emma Louise and Big Scary in 2011, the signs are good for these Melbournites in 2012.
To help launch Into the Darkening Blue this February, Buckley Ward will share the stage with crooning Sydneysiders Boats of Berlin.
Saturday February 11 – FBI Social, Sydney
