Returning to the music scene, Witbanks Bonfire Buffalo release their sentimental ballad ‘Remember Me’

After a three year hiatus, alternative rock band Bonfire Buffalo are back on the scene with an emotive ballad titled ‘Remember Me’. Pulling at the heartstrings of its listeners, the song still carries with it the quirky and eclectic sound the band are known for.

Bonfire Buffalo decided to release the song as a single saying it is apt for the tough times we are in. Bassist Carl Dedekind explains, “The song, simply put, is about keeping your chin up and holding on during difficult times, which is no doubt apt for the rough year the world has had. Also, the song deals with remembering the legacy of those gone.”

Despite the challenges the world has faced over the last year and those directly affecting the band, Bonfire Buffalo have remained positive and persistent hard workers. This has helped them to build a sustainable career. Their aim is to write music that’s got some meat on the bones and has longevity and ‘Remember Me’ is exactly that.

Asked why it has taken the band so long to release a new single, Carl concludes, “COVID and lockdown has brought things to a grinding halt. On a positive note, we were able to use that time for songwriting and will hopefully start recording our new album soon.”
