Buffalo Boy – “Where Did You Go?”


“Where Did You Go?” showcases a shimmering and melodic rock aesthetic from Buffalo Boy, the solo project of James Thomas, an artist from Swansea, UK. Themes of existentialism in song often are accompanied by darker instrumental ruminations, though this take is supported by an upbeat, hooky guitar-fronted allure.

The result thoroughly succeeds, escalating with cohesion from chipper guitar jangles into the buzzing, replay-inducing hook at the one-minute mark. A playful synth line adds a hazy, psychedelic edge thereafter, traversing into the subsequent verses. “Where Did You Go?” is an addictive, brightly melodic achievement from Buffalo Boy.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of June 2023’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Rock.
