Track By Track: BUOY - Break EP

The Sydney talent walks us through her stirring four-track release.

Hailing from Sydney, Charmian Kingston, aka BUOY, has been building a reputation over the past year as one of Australia's brightest and most innovative electronic acts. Trained as a jazz pianist, BUOY offers a fresh and exciting take on down-tempo electronic music that's certain to ensure first-time listeners won't forget her name. Her stirring single Clouds & Rain earned a well-deserved addition into triple j's regular rotation back in April, and now we see the super talented singer/producer releasing her breathtaking EP, Break. We had BUOY give us an insight into the feelings and direction behind the four tracks on Break.

Clouds & Rain

Clouds & Rain is a way dealing with the sorrow of separating from a person that you loved the most. I am still blown away by the production and mix of this, thanks to my talented buddies.

Exit 

Exit begs us to cherish the present moment and the good people around us because that’s really all that matters. Life is so short! 

Arctic Ocean

This song is trying to convey the feeling of helplessness, and also the feeling of still wanting to find a way connect with that person you loved and lost through the mutual brokenness. 

Everything Must Change

I didn’t write this one, it was written by Bernard Ighner and it’s number one on the list of my all time favourite songs. I hope that this version does it justice! The lyrics are my favourite, especially the chorus.buoy break EP track by track 2
