The Buckleys, a three-‐piece band featuring siblings Sarah, Lachlan and Molly
Buckley announced their new single "Money
" released today through Petrol Records/Universal Music
The Buckleys' new single "Money
" is their first worldwide release and embodies the band's brand of "Hippie Country" - a genre representing the infectious personality and spirited conscience that the band maintains. The track was written by Sarah
Buckley, who wrote with multi-platinum songwriters Phil Barton (Lee Brice/A Woman Like You) and Dave Thomson (Lady Antebellum/747) during her time in Nashville.
Since signing with CM Murphy's Petrol Records in 2019, the band has released two singles in Australia. The first "Daydream
" catapulted the trio into the limelight, scoring a #1 single at Australian country radio, followed by second single, "I'm Comin' For Ya (Love)," which reached #3. The success of the singles resulted in The Buckleys' nomination for Qantas New Talent Of The Year award at the prestigious 2020 Country Music
Awards Australian (Toyota Golden Guitar Awards) which recognize, celebrate and honor excellence and outstanding achievement in Australian country music.
Despite their young age (20, 18 and 17), the siblings from Byron Bay are no strangers to the music business. Established county music songwriters and producers including Emily Shackelton (Carly Peace/Every Little
Thing), Marty Dodson (Kenny Chesney/Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven, Jennifer Hanson
(Billy Currington/Let Me Down Easy) and Chad Carlson (who produced their single Daydream and Chase Rice's Ignite the Night) have co-‐written songs with the band.
The Buckleys are only the second signing to Petrol Records since CM Murphy signed award-winning siblings and band of brothers, INXS in 2009. "The Buckleys represent everything that is important to me both professionally and personally and I am excited to have them join the Petrol / Universal family and watch the world fall in love with this unique and special band" says CM Murphy, Petrol Records founder & Chairman.
Buckley says, "Writing a song titled 'Money' was kind of sarcastic/ironic because like the song says, all I really had was a little change in my pocket and not much more, but I was having the time of my life. To me, the song is for and about all the teenagers out there who generally don't have much coin to spend but are having a ball regardless! The word 'Money' is interchangeable with 'fun.'"
From their writing to the production to the music video, The Buckleys' vision was to create something that captured their high energy, positivity and spunk of some of their favorite live bands, particularly ones from the 60s and 70s.
" is the first single from their debut album, Breathe, coming soon. The band has performed at numerous internationally renowned festivals, events and concerts and plan to perform for U.S. audiences later this year.
