The Buckleys at the Northern

When Sarah, Lachlan and Molly Buckley, the young sibling trio out of Byron Bay, Australia started making waves just a few years ago, nobody knew what to expect. What resulted eclipsed anything beyond even their wildest dreams.

Dubbed ‘Hippie Country’ for their feel-good, fun-time music that doesn’t fit squarely into any box, their 2019 debut single Daydream shot to number one on Australian country radio charts.

However, the true litmus test of a new band is never their first effort – it’s their second. First albums come with all the luxury cliches: you have your whole life to prepare your first album, and nobody has any expectation. The second effort is the one that really shows what a band is made of, and for The Buckleys, that effort is their brand new five-song EP Take It As It Comes.

Take It As It Comes showcases a number of different sides to the band, but not so much that they stray too far for fans to forget why they fell in love with them in the first place. Stagnant is not in this band’s vocabulary, which makes Take It As It Comes absolutely the right package.

The Buckleys will be performing a live show at The Northern Hotel on 9 September with special guest, Mick Buckley and others. The free event kicks off at 8pm.
