BUOY ~ Took Me Up

BUOY Took Me Up Artwork!

Who is BUOY?  A heady new singer/producer from Sydney, Australia!

My first impression of “Took Me Up” :  A bizarre yet exhilarating track with rousing synths and ear-popping percussive mini outbursts around every unexpected turn!

My take :  It only took one listen to realize “Took Me Up” is anything but an ordinary track.  Filled with a schizophrenic like atmosphere of wandering moods and wavering emotions, Sydney based producer/vocalist BUOY is able to create a track I can’t seem to break away from.  Pulling me helplessly along between deep synth textures and dauntingly distorted voices only to crash back into waves of floating vocals and peaceful percussion sounds all over again.  “Took Me Up” twists and turns in surprising places but it always feels incredibly controlled.  Leaving me sitting here undeniably impressed!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
