DC area band, Touch the Buffalo are preparing to release their new album, Heart is For this August. Surviving the Golden Age is excited to premiere the album’s titular track.
Described as “an honest break up song,” “Heart Is For” adeptly mixes influences of 90s alt-rock with modern indie. There is something about the way that lead singer, Jon Johnson’s voice strains as he sings “babe” that sounds lifted directly out of Nirvana song. Even past that, the tight guitar arpeggios and double-timed vocal rhythm makes it sound like Toad the Wet Sprocket covering Letters to Cleo‘s “Here and Now.” Its a great song if you are looking for something new to listen to or feeling nostalgic about how they don’t make music like they used to in the 90s.
