It’s no surprise that the Buffalo Killers impressed the likes of Chris Robinson and Dan Auerbach, who, respectively, invited them to tour as an opening act and produced the band’s sophomore album. Drawing from the vintage sounds and vibes of heavy ’70s Rock, with a little bit of the era’s psychedelia thrown in and lots of memorable melodies, Buffalo Killers have continued to draw more and more attention with each new album release (including last year’s widely-acclaimed Heavy Reverie). With distortion-driven hooks and gritty, harmonized vocals that conjure images of the days of long hair and sideburns, Buffalo Killers bring a modern touch to tradition with astonishing inspiration.
