Find out your tartans, silver capes, glittery boots and androgynous loon pants, because the Classic Glam Era (the 1970s) is coming back… the sequinned assault is spear-headed by Cardiff indie-rock quartet BUZZARD BUZZARD BUZZARD.
Front man Tom Rees’ characteristic lead vocal feels redolent of Marc Bolan but that’s where the similarities with T.Rex end. And that’s a good thing. This band aren’t “trying to be” a seventies glam-band. They are one.
You’ll catch Slade, Smokie, Mud and the Bay City Rollers in their joyfully brash & fuzzy sounds. But you’ll also hear the sounds of lesser known seventies acts such as Pilot and Kenny.
“Love Forever” is out now [check the video below] and the theme + message is clear. Give love a chance, turn your back on hate ‘n’ greed and put your glad-rags on, ready to parteee.
