Video of the Moment #2219: Buffalo Sunn

Irish folk-rock quintet Buffalo Sunn recently released a new single called ‘Idle Man’, but the band themselves have been anything but idle this year. After spending the early part of 2016 recording in Los Angeles, Buffalo Sunn have stayed busy with live gigs and festival appearances, as chronicled on their official Facebook page. We at TGTF first encountered Buffalo Sunn about a year and a half ago at SXSW 2015, during the Full Irish Breakfast at B.D. Riley’s Pub. Their recent flurry of activity has us interested to see what’s next on the horizon for the Dublin lads, as 2016 draws to a close and 2017 quickly approaches.

Buffalo Sunn’s new promo video for ‘Idle Man’ was directed by Norther Irish cinematographer Paul Martin Brown, who depicts the song’s protagonist as stuck inside his own mind, desperately unable to connect with people around him. However, Brown also provides his character with a glimmer of hope, and if you read the comments on the video’s YouTube page, you’ll see that viewers are already asking for a continuation of the story. Will that be Buffalo Sunn’s next project? We’ll have to wait and see, but for now, you can watch the video for ‘Idle Man’ just below.
