Buckley Ward – So Pretend

Listen to Buckley Ward’s lead single off their new album “So Pretend.”

The band weaves intricately breezy Explosions In the Sky-esque guitar melodies and gentle harmonies to make some of the most quietly uplifting music I’ve heard in a while. Far from being precious, Buckley Ward simply exudes a calm optimism.

Their deeply textured soundscape is driven primarily by fantastic guitar work and punctuated by effortless vocals that simply course through your speakers. Upon first listening to “So Pretend,” one cannot help but notice the incredible driving momentum the song has.
