I Want You goes right to the core of what makes up The Buoys DNA – filled to the brim with euphoric riffs, head-thrashing passion, and nonstop joy. Known for their immensely high energy live shows, the accompanying music video sees The Buoys thrown around the Sydney sights inside a novelty sized backpack, barely containing the fire-starter energy that has become synonymous with the four-piece. With an immense talent for creating anthems that hit equally hard in headphones as they do on stage, I Want You is an exhilarating burst of rock power that grips from start to finish.
The Buoys on the single: “I Want You is a gritty sweaty rock song for anyone that’s been in a situationship. It’s about letting yourself jump head first into a casual romance with that person you see out all the time, who you can telepathically communicate with that it’s ‘time to get out of here’”.
I Want You follows on from a huge 2022 for The Buoys. Kicking off the year, their anthem Lie To Me Again placed at #85 in triple j’s Hottest 100 Countdown, before they headed out on the road for headline shows in celebration of their sophomore EP, ‘Unsolicited Advice For Your DIY Disaster’. One of the country’s most hard-working touring acts, The Buoys played their own headline show at Vivid LIVE, supported Wet Leg on their Splendour In The Grass sideshows, went on tour with Psychedelic Porn Crumpets and performed at Festival Of The Sun and Rolling Sets. Only three months into the year, The Buoys have already supported The Arctic Monkeys and Soccer Mommy, played Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras’ Fair Day and announced national tours with Eliza & The Delusionals and Ball Park Music. The band also launched triple j’s World Pride YouTube series, D&M.
