April 10th — we're celebrating the release of «Yew» the first single off BUHU's debut studio album, Tenets, at Cheer Up Charlies! «Yew» is a dreamy synth soaked love letter from BUHU frontman Jeremy Rogers to his beloved wife. Parisian fashion/record label, Kitsuné Musique, is releasing «Yew» worldwide via the Kitsuné Hot Stream on April 9th. Special guests include Solid State Dream Suit and BAIJ (Lauren Sanders' of Common Velvet's new project) to get your dance on. <3
BUHU is the shape-shifting musical brainchild of Jeremy Rogers and Tiffany Paciga.
More than just a moniker, BUHU is a retrospective of their lives and a reflection, or refraction, of their relationship. Nothing is held back, all is laid bare. To see BUHU perform is an experience so intimate that it feels almost illicit—like peeking through a window and witnessing a private moment you’re not meant to get to share. Rogers exudes true feeling on stage, bounding freely and dancing with the microphone, moving himself to the point that his legs buckle underneath the weight of all the emotion and fatigue. He wraps the mic cord around his neck like a noose, seemingly choking himself to get these words out. Meanwhile Paciga, like a goddess Rogers can never quite reach, holds court stoically, majestically, to the side, her throne an array of synths, drum machines, pedals, samplers, and loop stations, which she orchestrates like a conductor, weaving a musical tapestry that’s lush, sexy, and utterly captivating. The juxtaposition of the two performers together is impossible to look away from. It’s music you know somebody’s getting lucky to, whether you happen to be one of those lucky ones or not.
Born and bred between Wisconsin and Texas, BUHU’s recordings might be described as electronic bedroom pop, in the sense that Rogers produces them largely himself. But that term is way too reductive; these are no tinker-toy beats crapped out with GarageBand on a MacBook. BUHU’s compositions are powerful, sonically cinematic, multidimensional, precise, ever unfolding. The songwriting atop that composition borrows from many of the greats both past and present, from Jackson Browne to Modest Mouse, The Books, Tortoise, even Peter Gabriel. The beats bump and the hooks catch. BUHU's music attacks from both sides.
After touring extensively across both North America and Asia, BUHU is set to release their debut studio album, Tenets, on September 5, 2018, through FMF Records, with a worldwide tour to follow. — bio penned by Evan Magers
