Cardiff rockers band Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard have revealed their dark new single “Therapy”, alongside an accompanying live video.
Following on from their Welsh Music Prize nominated debut album ‘Backhand Deals’ in 2022, the band have been writing and recording at frontman and producer Tom Rees’s Rat Trap studio, the room where Rees has previously recorded and produced tracks for emerging talent – Panic Shack, Do Nothing and The Bug Club.
Therapy still carries the band’s the fast-paced energy and trademark ‘70s references from their earlier releases, but fuses it with heavy fuzz-drenched guitars, a crushing rhythm section, and fevered vocals delivering inward-facing lyrics about Rees’s views on therapy.
Speaking about it, he says: “Not surprisingly I wrote Therapy after I had my head squeezed like a giant cyst and years and years of backlogged pus just started oozing out (“my father” this and “my mother” that). I was so impressed by how great I felt that I became a massive nuisance to everyone around me telling them they need to go to therapy – big “a person you kind of know telling you that you NEED to watch Breaking Bad” vibes – so this song was really an extension of that. More than anything it was a fun opportunity to be creative with imagery around feeling frustrated, and the freedom that came from getting the help to understand why.”

The band have also announced a new 16-date headline UK tour for March.
