Buchanan – The Beep Test
What a time to be alive for Australia’s own alt-indie darlings, Buchanan.
Right off the top, Buchanan are getting ready to release new single ‘The Beep Test’ in late
November. The track was written and mixed in Los Angeles at G.O.O.D. Music with
legendary producer Anthony Kilhoffer (All seven Kanye West solo albums). The track was
also co-written with Space (Digital Daggers, Seether).
Having recently relocated to Los Angeles to launch his tech startup ‘Vampr’, a LinkedIn-
style music app connecting musicians and the music industry, Buchanan’s enigmatic
frontman Josh Simons has been co-writing on a number of exciting projects with Kilhoffer,
some of which are set to drop soon from West’s infamous hip-hop label.
The cherry on the cake comes in the form of being hand picked by multi-Grammy and
ARIA award winner Keith Urban to join him and Carrie Underwood on stage for the
Australian leg of his "ripCORD World Tour 2016". Buchanan’s atmospheric alt sound is
made for arenas and the crowds are sure to fall under their spell.
2016 has seen the four-piece release two albums, perform headline tours and with words like ‘million’ being used to describe their online streams and views, it’s safe to say
Buchanan are blowing up and their infectious sonic goodness is spreading like wildﬁre.
Dropping in early 2016, Buchanan’s acclaimed second studio album Pressure in an Empty
Space was released after a couple tough years for the band. Buchanan followed up this
album in the back half of 2016 with a joyous live recording titled Alive, showcasing years
of hard work honing their live sound, the album features ‘Run Faster’, ‘Human Spring’ and
‘Teachers’. Alive is an epic soaring triumph which will give you a great idea of what to
expect from the band on tour.
"We’ve been honing our craft as a live act for six years now – it was about time we gave
back to our fans with a recording that shows off our chops on stage, and from an incrediby rewarding Australian tour no less!" says frontman Josh Simons.
So get along to see Keith Urban’s electrifying live show, the current queen of country
Carrie Underwood and Australia’s next big thing Buchanan… You will not be
