PREMIERE: Foot welcome the apocalypse on their explosive new album Buffalo

If you’re a fan of Black Sabbath or Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, you’re in for a treat with Melbourne four piece outfit Foot.

Made up of Paul Holden (Vox, Guitar), Dave Pemberton (Guitar), Shaun Stolk (Bass) and Jack Eddie (Drums), Foot are the epitome of stoner rock, doused in heavy guitar and sinister melodies.

Searching for an escape? Jump on board the train to nowhere with Foot’s eerie and explosive new album Buffalo. 

The new record Buffalo sits on the heavier side of the desert rock scale, dripping with apocalyptic vision and hellish undertones.

The eight track release radiates desert vibes from start to finish, first track off the album Thunder Cave opening with a western twang that slowly builds into an explosion of harrowing guitars and energetic drum bashes.

Whilst Cactus follows closely behind, Live Laugh Love stands out for its anthemic versus and harmonised chorus, with raw and brutally honest lyrics that you can’t help but wail along to. Buffalo takes the shape of something else entirely, a two and a half minute atmospheric instrumental that’s surprisingly gentle.

Sweet Stuff and Lied reel listeners in with satanic guitar riffs and vocals that burst with energy once the chorus hits. Maningrida draws similarities to Buffalo in terms of minimalism, sounding almost like a stripped back acoustic track. Low Mist is the last laugh of Buffalo, and don’t be fooled by its tranquil beginning.

Opening with a benign, almost warm-hearted guitar riff, the track soon explodes into absolute mania, before switching back to its subdued starting point and Holden’s smooth, hazy vocals.

Buffalo is an album that starts and finishes on a bang. That being said, you’ll find no shortage of energy lying between the posts.


Catch Foot at their Buffalo album launch, Thursday January 18th at The Last Chance Rock and Roll Bar, Melbourne. Grab all the details here.
