Luke Buda, he of The Phoenix Foundation renown, recently announced that he is about to release his first album in 12 (twelve!) years. The album Buda is due for release on October 15th, and so it is only appropriate that the show hits the road too. Check out the where-and-when below:
Luke promises to perform every song from Buda, as well as favourites from 2005's Special Surprise and 2008's Vesuvius. Just to tease, he's implied there may even be a couple of sneaky Phoenix Foundation tracks in the mix, as well as a few tunes from the Hunt For The Wilderpeople OST. If this sounds like you, get your tickets! They go on sale via Banished Music from 9am, Wednesday August 4.
Buda has already released one of the tracks from Buda, called Here Comes The Wind. Check it out here:
And if you'd like to pre-order the album, this is where you want to go.
Full Press Release:
Luke Buda (he/him) is a songwriter based in Te Whanganui-a-Tara (Wellington). Buda’s music finds influence in the warm strums that emanated from Laurel Canyon in the 1960s, the dreamy vocals of supreme 1970s soft rock and disco, and the digital delays and drum machines wafting out from the UK in the early 1980s.
Throughout October and November, Luke Buda will travel the length and breadth of both Te Ika a Māui and Te Waipounamu, to celebrate the release of his new album Buda (his first solo excursion in twelve years).
Attendees will be treated to a blend of Buda's sincere but sardonic musings about feeling old and tired and anxious about everything. To make things extra spesh, Buda has enlisted the help of cream of Aotearoa's indie crop. His live band features Olivia Campion (Yumi Zouma, Mystery Waitress), Jacqui Nyman (Bret McKenzie Band), and Anita Clark, (Motte, as well as appearances alongside Lawrence Arabia, and The Phoenix Foundation).
