Hey it’s another band from Melbourne but this time it’s Buckley Ward. It’s been three years since their last full length album was released; they’ve got a new line-up and they’ve got a new album called So Pretend, which they’re releasing on the 20th of April. Describing themselves as tender pop with a dash of electro, I’m sure you’ll hear much more of their stuff around the traps.
