Sydney’s larrikin indie-rocksters Buffalo Paradise are wearing their hearts firmly on their tassled sleeves on their soulful new single, ‘Gunfight’.
The song, produced by ARIA-Nominated producer Greg Stace at Ralph Street Studios, is a stirring, piano-driven ballad that Gang Of Youths fans will undoubtedly stan.
Singer Lachie Pringle says the tune was written about the mental battles he experienced as a result of the uncertainties triggered by the global pandemic.
“Through COVID lockdowns, I constantly found myself living in a world where my profession no longer existed,” the frontman explains.
“I found that I was way less prepared for that than I thought I would be. The metaphor of the song is essentially about bringing a knife to a gunfight.”
To coincide with the release, the band have also released a riotous accompanying music video inspired by old Western films.
“Lachie is a cowboy bandit on the run, having just ditched his gang ‘The Buff Boys’ and stolen their fortune,” Pringle explains.
“The rest of the band are ‘The Buff Boys’ on a manhunt for Lachie and the stolen cash. The climax takes place at an abandoned ranch that Lachie has been hiding out at. The boys engage in a gun fight. Lachie eventually appears to surrender, but has a knife held behind his back.”
