Listen to ‘I Want You’, The Buoys’ New Song “For Anyone That’s Been in a Situationship”

The Buoys have shared their first new music for the year, a rollicking, fuzzed-out single titled ‘I Want You’. The band call it “a gritty sweaty rock song for anyone that’s been in a situationship.”

They continue: “It’s about letting yourself jump head first into a casual romance with that person you see out all the time, who you can telepathically communicate with that it’s ‘time to get out of here.'” Listen below.

The Buoys – ‘I Want You’

‘I Want You’ follows the 2022 single ‘Red Flags’, which was The Buoys’ first release following their 2021 EP Unsolicited Advice for Your DIY Disaster. That release contained fan favourites ‘Bad Habit’ and ‘Lie to Me Again’ – the latter of which came in at #85 on triple j’s Hottest 100 of 2021. ‘Red Flags’ made it to #188 in triple j’s Hottest 200 of 2022.

Tonight (Thursday, 9th March), The Buoys kick off a national co-headline tour with Eliza & the Delusionals with a show at Bendigo’s Tonic Bar. From there, the tour will continue to Geelong, Melbourne, Rye, Coffs Harbour, Byron Bay, Noosavile, Newcastle, Towradgi, Ulladulla, Caringbah and the Central Coast.

“Excitement doesn’t even begin to cover how stoked we are to be playing with legends Eliza & The Delusionals around Australia in some familiar places, but mostly in towns and cities we’ve never had the pleasure of playing before,” The Buoys said in a statement when announcing the tour.

“We’ve been huge fans of theirs for so long and we can’t wait to hit the road with them and share such a special tour together.”

In addition to their tour with Eliza & the Delusionals, The Buoys will be supporting Ball Park Music on the band’s tour in May, playing shows in Fremantle, Hobart, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. Find details for that here.
