It’s the weekend! Even if you’re spending yours working like me, I hope you can carve out a little “you” time and celebrate it. When you do, do me a favour and start spinning “Like We Used To,” the funky new single from Brisbane’s The New Buzz. You won’t regret it.

This six-piece has such a right, polished sound that borrows from soul and funk traditions. That’s not so surprising though, because the members come from some of the coolest bands around including Dubmarine, Bullhorn, Laneous & The Family Yah, Bobby Alu & The Palm Royale, and heaps more. The band works in a really spontaneous way, heading to the studio whenever its members are in town at the same time and laying down tracks using vintage gear. It’s taken them two years to get together enough material to make an album, but when it sounds this good I’m sure you’ll agree it’s worth the wait.

Until the album’s released, you’ll just need to be happy spinning this killer song. If you love it, make sure you head to The New Buzz’s PledgeMusic page where you can get a vinyl copy of the single and heaps of other cool stuff including lyrics sheets, launch tickets, and heaps more.
