Australian act, The Buckleys, have announced the release of their forthcoming debut album Daydream on September 25, 2020 via Petrol Records/Universal Records/UMe. “This is our first album and we wanted to put every bit of ourselves into it in every moment,” says vocalist Sarah Grace Buckley. Daydream is available for pre-order here: https://TheBuckleys.lnk.to/Daydream.
Purveyors of what they call “Hippie Country,” – a genre representing the infectious personality and spirited conscience that the band maintains through these tough times, these three young artists – Sarah 20, Lachlan 19 and Molly 17, – have been making strides since they released their first singles in 2019, including “Daydream,” which catapulted the trio into the limelight, scoring a #1 single on Australian country radio, which was followed by the second single, “I’m Comin’ For Ya (Love),” which reached #3. Their worldwide debut single “Money” reached #2 and its follow up “Breathe” at #3 and headed upwards to #2.
As international touring opportunities became limited in 2020, the band found another way to tap into a much larger market. The Buckleys became one of the first bands to capture a global audience in the midst of a pandemic, with their groundbreaking world virtual tour achieving a ‘virtual reach’ of more than 4.5 million. Presented by Live Nation, the world virtual tour was developed in conjunction with Live Nation and the band’s record label, Petrol Records and US label, UMe. Performing individually curated shows for specific regions, starting in North America and adding additional dates all over the world (Latin America, Asia, Europe, India, Middle East, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa), performances were streamed on newly launched Live Nation Live From Home platform, House of Blues’ and their partners (Book My Show, Mojo Concerts, Big Concerts) social platforms. Through these online channels, the rising hippie country siblings were able to recreate the personalized “live” experience, during a time of social distancing.
Now with a global audience who has been introduced to the band, The Buckleys are prepping for the release of their debut album.
