Another fantastic publication surfaces! This time we’re thrilled to see the online music blog ‘IMR’ review the latest label release from Buzhold, along with a short Q&A with the band!

Here’s a quick overview of some of the amazing quotes taken from their review.

Before we dive in, you can now enjoy the album on all major streaming and download platforms, and for those who appreciate physical formats, beautifully crafted CDs and cassettes are also available for purchase on Bandcamp. You can also jump straight to the full review via the IMR website here.

“Buzhold’s debut is an audacious exploration of grunge and shoegaze, infused with a distinctive Estonian flavor that sets it apart. The album feels like a journey back to the raw energy of Nirvana while embracing the intricate detailing of shoegaze pioneers.”

 

“Described by the band as the heart of the album, “Woven” is a testament to Buzhold’s creative genesis. The track’s dynamic structure—forgoing the traditional verse-chorus format for a more fluid, evolving composition—highlights the band’s willingness to experiment and push boundaries.”

Buzhold Interview with IMR

Q: Can you describe the creative process behind “What It Meant?” and how did your environment in Tallinn influence the album’s sound?

A: “Our songs flowed out quite naturally. Initially, we were more focused on performing live without a clear plan to release an album. Our music direction was undefined; we were experimenting. Tallinn’s punk scene, especially, had a significant influence, pushing us towards a heavier sound on some tracks to align with local tastes.”

Q: How have bands like Nirvana and the shoegaze genre influenced your music?

A: “Nirvana inspired us with their simplicity and powerful sound. We aimed to emulate that—creating straightforward, impactful riffs and melodies. Shoegaze’s influence was more about the atmospheric and immersive qualities, though our understanding and execution of shoegaze evolved as we developed our sound.”

Q: “Woven” is mentioned as the heart of the album. What makes this track so special to you?

A: “Woven” represents the genesis of our band; it’s where our journey truly began. This song encapsulates all aspects of our debut, blending our influences and creative aspirations into a single track that holds a special place for us.”

Q: Looking forward, how do you see your sound evolving in the future?

A: “While we’re keeping our future directions close to our chest, rest assured, it’s a big secret we’re excited to reveal in time. Our sound will continue to evolve, reflecting our growth as musicians and individuals.”

Q: What connection do you hope to establish with your fans through “What It Meant?”?

A: “We hope our music resonates with those who find beauty in the same things we do. Our songs are crafted with passion and dedication, containing layers of meaning that we hope will connect with listeners on a deep level.”

“What It Meant?” is the debut 9-track album from Buzhold available on both CD and cassette formats.
