BUCHANAN Debut EP ‘No Photo’ out now…

With comparisons to Phoenix, Mumford & Sons and Band Of Horses, Buchanan is the coming together of the unabashed melodies of Josh Simons (vocals, keys) and the sweeping instrumentation of Jon Bara (guitars). The Melbourne based band burst on to the scene with a 5 star review for their debut single ‘Teachers’ from Triple J’s Richard Kingsmill, which in-turn earned Buchanan the winning spot on the Triple J Laneway Festival competition.


“Nice choice Triple J Unearthed” TWITTER @DoctortriplejPM. Independently released through Inertia, Buchanan’s debut EP ‘No Photo’ showcases the bands ability to weave classic pop melodies with progressive rock arrangements. Conceived from a song writing session in Victoria’s Safety Beach, the EP combines the talents of Simons and Bara, the pair proving the perfect songwriting compliment for one another. Simons bringing his ‘80’s inspired melodies to Bara’s progressive arrangements for a fresh take on melodic-rock. Having spent the first part of the year in good company with the likes of Gypsy & The Cat, Kimbra and Tim & Jean, Buchanan are showing no signs of slowing down as they get set to support Papa Vs Pretty and Jinja Safari on a run of Melbourne tour dates. Buchanan’s debut EP ‘No Photo’ is now available through all good record stores and iTunes. Catch Buchanan supporting Papa Vs Pretty, Saturday 25th June at The Northcote Social Club and Jinja Safari Saturday July 23rd at The Corner.
