Outrun the Buffalo / Bio
Outrun the Buffalo are an Auckland-based band who specialise in a delicious blend of ambient and psychedelic rock. They combine driving guitar riffs and eerie synth lines with space-age ambience and vocal harmonies. Their writing draws upon a diverse number of influences to produce epic soundscapes within free flowing jams. Combined with solid backgrounds in classical, jazz, electronica and rock music, Outrun the Buffalo are unique entity of muscial goodness.
The band was founded by Calvin Davidson and Tim Burrows. The pair have been writing, gigging, and recording music together for over 5 years, forming Outrun the Buffalo towards the end of 2010. In 2011 they added two new members: Nico Fitzpatrick, who met Calvin while studying classical guitar together at The University of Auckland; and Christian Harraway, who had recently moved to Auckland to study jazz at The New Zealand School of Music. Collectively they have been writing and developing their unique sound while firmly establishing themselves on Auckland's gigging circuit.
In June 2011 Outrun the Buffalo released their debut 5 track EP 'But Now They Live in a Zoo' which has been well received. Outrun the Buffalo are currently gigging throughout Auckland, and will be touring NZ later in the year with new material as they prepare to record a follow up to their debut release.
Wow! Outrun the Buffalo should be the next big thing in New Zealand music. That’s how impressed I was with their new EP – music.net.nz
… this EP is an oddity – but the more I listen, the more it intrigues. – NZMusician Magazine
