There was a time a year or two ago where you couldn’t move for tripping over yet another new funk/ soul outfit from Oz – probably from Melbourne. But if things have been quiet on that score recently, Brisbane’s The New Buzz are here to put things to right with their debut 45 which offers up two rather different but both highly promising bumps, off the ground. A-side Like We Used To features the ear-pleasing tones of Jess Lean and is a blistering soul stomper with northern stylings and a garage/ fuzz-rock bridge. B-side action comes in the form of twitchy clavinet-led funk outing Silver Linings. If that floats your boat – get involved with the crowdfunding campaign and make it happen HERE.
