Music | Review: “By The Ocean By The Sea” by Buffalo Sunn

“By The Ocean By The Sea” is a spectacular début album by Buffalo Sunn.  As mentioned in a news piece about the Sound Training College recently, the album was being produced by Grammy winner Pat McCarthy at Grouse Lodge.  The lengths that Buffalo Sunn have gone to in the recording of this album seem to have paid off.

Buffalo Sunn - By The Ocean By The Sea coverBoth visually and musically, this album sounds like The Riptide Movement picked up U2’s instruments and played a load of The Stunning to soundtrack videos of the West of Ireland.

Formally known as Sweet Jane, the band have certainly reinvigorated themselves with the new record and name.  Best tracks on the album are ‘By Your Side, which channels Band Of Horses at times, and ‘Ocean’ which has some amazing guitar throughout.

“By The Ocean By The Sea” is out now on Reekus Records.
