BLACK GOLD BUFFALO 
NEW SINGLE – PENKENNA – MARCH 25th on BUFFALO RECORDS LDN 
 
** mixes from Dan Beaumont + Lauren Flax ** 

‘A brooding slip of dystopian romance’ – NME
‘Coldwave stabs and analogue licks’ – DAZED
Crystalline instrumentation tied to careful, expansive basslines, ‘Penkenna’ might be as close as we’ll get to soaring above our tangled, grey cityscapes this year.
The new single by London trio Black Gold Buffalo, it’s at once taught and angular, all the while reverberating with a beautiful, resolute freedom, Keziah Stilwell’s voice flowing like a half-formed memory, always just out of reach.
Released on March 24th ‘Penkenna’ arrives with two remixes from Dan Beaumont – who pairs his twisted 4×4 club cut with a groove struck DUB edit, and Lauren Flax who strips ‘Penkenna’ back to its roots, inviting glistening vocal layers to shimmer across minimal strings and sparkling keys.
‘Penkenna’ follows the subtle calypso ache of captivating debut track ‘Magnets’, the dark electro whirr of ‘Amillion’ and ‘Body Of Verity’, which premiered on Dazed Digital last summer.
Alongside Keziah Stilwell, Hannah Holland and Joy Josephs complete the trio. Spanning a wide variation of musical backgrounds, Keziah’s haunting calls are matched by the intricate percussive contortions of Joy Josephs and the heady, dub laced bass and gradual synth blooms of Hannah Holland.
Playing shows around London and the UK, Black Gold Buffalo’s “electrifying” (NME) performances combined with strong individual musicianship have been entrancing new fans at every outing.
