Buffalo Sunn Irish Band of the Week
Music has come a long way in recent times, with home studios spreading like wildfire and recording quality set to unbelievable standards from a bedroom, the bigger studios have had to up their game and show what they are made of. The production value of Buffalo Sunn’s debut album, ‘Ocean by the Sea’, does just that. ‘Ocean by the Sea’ was recorded at the famous Grouse Lodge studios, with Grammy Award winner Pat McCarthy of R.E.M. and U2 fame.
The six-piece band are made up of 4 Paxton brothers and 2 honorary brothers in arms. You might remember them as Sweet Jane until late 2013, where they racked up several big time support slots along their journey. Now under the new moniker they are making a name for themselves across the globe from Sallynoggin to Singapore.

Describing themselves as cosmic rock’n’roll, the Dublin boys have brought back that reverb loving sound of the 90’s, while improving and modernising it to a perfect collage. ‘Ocean by the Sea’ is a collection of 10 songs that are smooth, feel good numbers with the stand out track ‘Witches’, a rip roaring rock track which drives home their sound to a tee.
You can catch Buffalo Sunn at the fantastic Saucy Sundays at The Grand Social on November 9th followed by a headline at the Bello Bar later in the month on the 21st.
