Biography

Balls-out Psych Pop. That’s how Aaron Schroeder, madman behind Thunder Buffalo describes their signature sound. At first listen, one may compare TB’s bombastic, fuzzy flavor to classic garage blues bands like MC5 or The Sonics. But after closer examination, Schroeder is correct… Thunder Buffalo is making pure raunch pop.

TB’s heavy shuffles and frantic “four on the floor” rhythms define their contagious brand of garage rock, while hints of 60’s be-bop and soul make them accessible to the point where you may find them in your teenage sister’s tape deck. Please don’t be mistaken however, Thunder Buffalo is anything but soft and sweet. A clear underground snarl is ever-present in TB’s music which recalls psychedelic noise bands like Suicide, Liars, and Swans.

With a revolving door of notable Seattle musicians that include Branden Kempt (bass), Matt Winter (drums) Andrew Greagor (drums) and Zach Marley (guitar), Thunder Buffalo’s live performances may vary a bit stylistically from one performance to the next, but are never lacking in energy, luster or musicianship.

Within a year, TB have released a debut album on Sarathan Records and conducted several US tours… Schroeder is currently working night and day on TB’s next release while getting ready to set sail on a month long stint in March.
