Buí is a collaborative musical project based around the music of singer songwriter Josh Healy, but one that has over the years evolved to include Eoin Johnson, Adam Sloan and Ronan McQuillan. N64 meets C86 on their new single Something Else To Talk About, which has a super cute retro arcade style video, so why not give it a go. Ready Player One!
The video opens with analogue noises so retro you’d expect (Super) Mario to supply the vocals to the following song. Instead, you get Healy’s sweetly accented, emotive vocals which provide an old school indie charm to the song. Underpinning that there’s an 8bit inspired melody that jousts RPG-style with the shoegaze meets Seattle burr of the guitars, lending Something Else To Talk About an individual and pleasingly idiosyncratic feel.
Something Else To Talk About is out now via Analogue Catalogue Records as part of a double A side single along with the track People Don’t Think, both of which can be streamed on Spotify and are also available in a limited edition 7-inch single – click here for more information.
