Buchanan - No Photo EP
This article also appears on www.soundsxp.com
Since forming as a duo in 2009, Buchanan's ascent has been steady. The Australians released a low-key single and EP in 2010, now expanded to a four piece they've spent this year gigging across their homeland and gaining much support from alternative radio stations and blogs.
Available in the UK as an import, the No Photo EP is the band's first widely available release and is the work of a band with a fully formed sound and a clear indication of the musical direction they're taking. The Australian Turin Brakes anyone?
Although there is a tendency to veer a little too close to the middle of the road on occasion, the majesty of tracks like Teachers and Mr Keeperman are enough to keep the listener on side and make this a very worthwhile, if slightly polite listen.
