BUOY - Exit

BUOY - Exit
Sydney based artist BUOY (Charmian Kingston) has spent the last year steadily building her reputation as one of Australia’s most innovative and interesting electronic acts. After the release of 'Clouds & Rain' in April, which earned her a Triple J addition, FBi & national tastemaker radio support, rave reviews online across Australia & internationally with outlets like Majestic Casual, The Ladies Network & One A Day, as well as a spot at Splendour in the Grass, BUOY is now set to release her Break EP via October Records.

Working with longtime collaborator Jack Grace and recent Pieater signing Christopher Port, the Break EP sees BUOY's pairing her established ear for melancholy and tension with bursts of vibrant colour. Whilst earlier output experimented heavily with vocal layering and effects, Break strips Charmian's striking vocals bare to create a newfound sense of intimacy and immediacy. Break mines UK Garage and esoteric pop to infuse BUOY's output with faster tempos and dance-ready syncopation.

Emotionally raw and technically brilliant, Break showcases an increasingly confident musician willing herself to new heights of artistic flair and sonic mastery. Be sure to catch BUOY at one of her Break EP shows, touring this September.

About this track...

Exit's crackling textures and droning synth work are reminiscent of James Blake. BUOY builds an introspective mood before launching into a relentless double-time section in the song’s second half. As with most of BUOY's work, the track is about tension & release, and is worth listening to the very end.

MUSIC DIRECTOR PICK: Gloria Brancatisano, SYN, Melbourne (VIC)
