Belfast-based Buí have been making a significant mark on the Irish music scene of late. Formed two years ago, the collaborative project led by singer songwriter Josh Healy has seen a success of their first album “Eugene” in 2017, and are now out with their latest release.
“Something Else To Talk About” is a mellowed out melancholic
track surrounded by deep basslines and 8-bit inspirations. The theme of
displacement thrives throughout the overarching minor key melodies that share
quiet grunge soundscapes and head-fuzzing noise hooks, which aim to take precedence
against the fundamental vocals that quietly shine here. These sadly blissful
aspects create a seemingly contrasting relationship with the subtle vocals of
Josh Healy, who both hides in and out of these synonymized sounds yet also
becoming the core effect of the track’s melancholy through sensitive self-reflective
There’s something alluring about the introspective nature of
this track and we can’t get enough of it.
