Sergeant Buzfuz
Gold Feelings Blang

Article written by Kev W - Nov 19, 2014

There have been a few tweaks in the line-up of London indie-folk-popsters Sergeant Buzfuz since their last album, the epic musical portrayal of the early papacy, 'Go To The Devil And Shake Yourself', but despite a few delays a new album, 'Balloons For Linda', is set for release early next year, and judging by this first taster they've come back stronger than ever. The summery, glistening 'Gold Feelings' is perhaps their most immediate and endearing song to date. It's been described as a cross between Pulp and The Beach Boys. The band say that most of them don't really like The Beach Boys, but then nobody's perfect.

You can just about detect a little of each of those bands in 'Gold Feelings', along with a stronger flavour of Belle & Sebastian. Hitting you with a chorus so contagious that Bob Geldof is probably considering another fundraising track to stop it, it's a tune to whisk away those winter blues. B-side 'Cuckoo Boogie' is described as "glam-folk revival", and pretty much true to its word, it kind of recalls Slade's 'Cos I Luv You' - at least as far as having a stomping beat and some violin anyway. It's another upbeat number and could have been a single in its own right. It looks like summer's not quite finished in the world of Sergeant Buzfuz, and that's no bad thing.
