It’s funny how people discover music these days. You can trawl the internet searching through countless blogs, you can listen to every bloody podcast you can get your hands on, you can tune your dial to far too many satellite radio stations… or, if you’re lucky I guess, you could just sit around and wait until a mate shows you some demos he’s been working on.

Earlier this year a good friend of mine flicked me a Soundcloud link to around 10 or so tracks he’d recorded with a few mates at a farm on the outskirts of Bathurst, under the moniker ‘Green Buzzard’. I immediately became hooked – and today it’s with great pleasure we announce that Green Buzzard have signed to I OH YOU and we welcome them to family.

Along with this we’re very excited to let you know that the band will be releasing their debut, double a-side vinyl 7” on August 21 through I OH YOU (the first taste of which you can find below). We’re also happy to announce that the fantastic NYC-based tastemaker label Mermaid Avenue/Mom+Pop will be releasing the 7” in the USA.

To be honest, there’s not a lot for me to tell you about Green Buzzard. They’ve never played a show, nor have they released any songs. There are no reviews to quote and certainly no big supports or festivals played to mention. What I can do however is tell you that they’re a bunch of mates from Sydney who’ve played in a bunch of bands over the years and are currently penning some great tunes.

Along with that, I can give you their debut single – a tight little gem called ‘Zoo Fly’, along with a video the band filmed with Sydney director Matt Dempsey at Paddy Harrowsmith’s house in Chippendale. If you like it then you should come down to the Civic Hotel on Friday 17 July because they’re going to be playing their first ever show…and it’s free!

Green Buzzard is:
Paddy Harrowsmith
James West
Huw Farrell
Dave Constable
Micky Grossman

Alright, that’ll do for now. There’s more to come but you’ll have to wait – we’re just getting started over here baby!


Green Buzzard will be releasing their debut on a double A-side 7″ vinyl (including ‘Zoo Fly’) via I OH YOU in AUS on 21 August and on Mermaid Avenue/Mom+Pop in the USA.
