Having released their internationally acclaimed debut album, ‘Daydream‘, rising Australian music stars, The Buckleys, return with ‘Woodstock69’ — an ode to one of the most monumental moments in music history. It features a beautifully curated music video that was directed by the youngest band member, Molly Buckley who shot the video at Chris Murphy’s beloved Ballina property, Sugar Beach Ranch. Woodstock69 delivers one of the many highlights from their full-length album.

‘Woodstock69’ perfectly captures the Byron Bay siblings’ exquisite song-writing and feel-good foundations. Written by Sarah Buckley, Phil Barton (Nashville’s Music Row Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year) and Dave Thomson (co-writer #1 hit ‘Champagne Night’ by Lady A) and scheduled for release on Petrol Records / UMe, ‘Woodstock69’ is a nostalgic love letter to live music and the impact it has had on their lives and fellow performers.
With the band’s signature authenticity and aura of liberation, Sarah’s alluring vocal palette, paired with both the charming instrumentals and finely crafted videography results in a stunning audio-visual aesthetic that sways between snippets of the sibling trio and original footage from the famous 1969 Woodstock festival.
“Beyond Woodstock, this song is reminiscent of the times we all stood in packed crowds, singing songs, holding the hands of strangers, and dancing together. It’s a song that embodies the excitement we have for when we all get to do this again. This is our love letter to live music and the impact Live Music has had on all of our lives.” The Buckleys
Whilst Australia is currently unable to host live events, the band has not lost their creative spirit and recently launched the Soulfood Sessions – performing all their favourite cover songs from their home studio, Soulfood Studios which can be viewed through their YouTube channel. The performances are reminiscent of their virtual live tour with Live Nation last year that exposed the band to over 5 million viewers globally.
