Buckley Ward will be launching their new album So Pretend across a number of their favourite local venues when they head out on the road this April/May. Foreshadowed by the single ‘Into the Darkening Blue’and title track ‘So Pretend’, Buckley Ward’s forthcoming album is due for release on April 20 through Shock Records.
So Pretend is an album with pop at its heart, and something less definable in its veins. On the surface, the shimmering melodies and pitch perfect harmonies dominate, but listen closer and the album’s
darker undercurrents snap sharply into focus.
Since the release of the album’s title track and first single in late 2011, momentum has been steadily building behind the band and has seen them hand selected to open for such names as Jungle Giants, San Cisco and Big Scary, the latter taking them on a national tour.
