A mellifluous, dance floor ready dream: BUFFY drops new EP Lucky

words by staff writer

On her second EP, Lucky, the Melbourne-based artists fuses upbeat electronica with infectious pop melodies.

The genre-bending artist BUFFY has returned with her long-anticipated EP Lucky: a trifecta of shimmering pop tracks that are sure to put her squarely on the radar of Melbourne music fans.

Bringing together the singles Rollercoaster, Clear and the title track, Lucky, the EP offers listeners a taste of what BUFFY is all about. After coming up in the Melbourne underground punk scene, BUFFY (Eva Pattison) disappeared, spending her time learning audio production and working on a brand new sound.

In 2021, BUFFY debuted with a flurry of glowing dance-pop singles including Cruel and Dance Alone, which got the attention of Triple J Unearthed, Purple Sneakers and Kobalt, who was quick to sign her on a publishing deal. One of her early tracks also scored a remix by Aussie favourite DJ Denim.

With Lucky, BUFFY puts forth a fully-recognised vision. Fusing elements of 2010s alternative like Chvrches and Bonobo with contemporary production courtesy of scene favourite Lucy Blomkamp (Gia Woods, Mallrat, ninajirachi, Ta-Ku, 6lack), Lucky is a pulsating, sugar-coated treat that leaves listeners hungry for more.

The EP opens with Clear, a layer cake of jagged synths, reverb-laden vocals and propulsive side chain compression. Next comes Rollercoaster, a slightly more moody track lamenting selfish lovers that found itself a coveted spot on Spotify’s New Dance Beats Playlist.

On the title track, bursting with positive energy, BUFFY immortalises the moments in life and love when everything feels like it’s falling perfectly into place. The artist’s crystalline voice is on full display here, hitting the pre-chorus high notes with ease. Giving listeners a tasty dose of house-laced electronica with a heartbeat, the tracks ends the collection on a high.
