Sydney’s own The Buoys return today with new single, ‘Subject A’

  • 2 min read

Following their first headline show in 2024 for Great Southern Nights, Sydney’s own The Buoys return today with new single, ‘Subject A’.

Filled to the brim with exhilarating guitar riffs and cut to the core lyricism, ‘Subject A’ showcases The Buoys’ at their absolute best, delivering empowered, no-nonsense rock from start to finish. Not ones to shy away from addressing misogyny, ‘Subject A’ is an unashamed and uncompromised response to this sexism. The accompanying music video captures when The Buoys took their new single ‘Subject A’ on the road thanks to their mates at Jameson, working with Sam Brumby and Dougal Gorman to capture their Laneway tour from Sydney to Melbourne on film.

Speaking about the single, The Buoys shared, “We had the absolute pleasure of being taken on the road by Jameson to celebrate our new song ‘Subject A’. ‘Subject A’ is a commentary on the male gaze, and the pressure to suppress yourself in order to be perceived as cool and attractive. Our ‘subject’ in this musical case study, is the quintessential fu** boy. The song celebrates all the things you now refuse to change about yourself in order to fit in to be seen as ‘cool’.”

 'Subject A’ marks the second single from The Buoys in 2024, following on from ‘Guard My Heart’. Prior to this, the band released singles, ‘I Want You’ and ‘Settle Petal’, as well as a collaboration with Norway’s Sløtface in ‘Fight Back Time’. One of the country’s most hard-working touring acts, The Buoys squeezed in extensive touring between releases, including shows with the likes of Arctic Monkeys, DMAs, IDLES and Royal Blood. Most recently, The Buoys played Party In The Paddock, the Melbourne leg of Laneway Festival and Great Southern Nights.

The Buoys blasted out of the local punk rock scene, and in just a few short years, released three EPs together, playing sold-out shows across the country that have earned them a devoted following and engrained this Sydney based rock band into Australian music culture. From coming in at #85 on triple j’s Hottest 100 of 2021 with ‘Lie To Me Again’, to touring and supporting the likes of The Dandy Warhols, Soccer Mommy, Wet Leg and Ball Park Music, The Buoys themselves are devoted to playing high-octane shows, and as a result have cemented their place as an unmissable live show experience.

With the promise of much more to come this year, tune into ‘Subject A’ today and stay tuned for more of The Buoys in 2024.
