Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard Share Music Video For”Late Night City”

Taken From The Non-Stop EP Out Now

Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard share their music video for “Late Night City” — the song is taken from the band’s new release The Non-Stop EP, out now via Missing Piece Records / Communion.

The energy of this track is exactly what we need to embrace. “Late Night City” is the powerful anthem we need, feel the vibes of this ardent hit.  It’s raucous rock, with 60s psych elements and 70’s classic rock running through this rich tapestry of textures, soul and rhythm- the song immerses the audience as reflected in the new video.

The band also released a short titled “Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard’s Beautiful Domes” — it’s “produced” by the fictional “Gorfforaeth Darlledu Sosialaidd Cymraeg,” which translates from Welsh to English as “Welsh Socialist Broadcasting Corporation.” The video features surreal stop-motion animation, while also epitomizing their reputation as one of the UK’s most thrilling live bands with a rollicking performance of “Stockholm City Rock.” 

I wrote ‘Late Night City’ whilst working as a sound engineer in this dive bar in Cardiff, every Saturday night I crossed this bridge to get to work, and crossed the same bridge to get home,” frontman Tom Rees told Blackbook. “Cardiff is quite famously known for level of debauchery that it unleashes on a Friday and Saturday night (the scenes can be likened to a renaissance painting in many ways), and whilst observing the hedonism and satanism and heroism I wondered how people justify late night behaviour, and after about ten minutes I decided (I’ve made my mind up don’t try and change it) that it was by submitting themselves to daily subservience at the hands of bosses or partners or whatever you like, and the song is just an exploration of that idea and whether one really does justify the other. In actual fact I just wanted to rip off ‘Born on the Bayou’ by Creedence.”
