Premiere: The White Buffalo – ‘Modern Times’

An American underground hero...

The White Buffalo is an American underground hero.

Real name Jake Smith, the songwriter's rough hewn yet poetic approach has brought enormous acclaim from all corners.

New album 'Love And The Death Of Damnation' is out now, but it's set to gain a full European release in February. Given the expansive treatment, fans on this side of the Atlantic can look forward to three brand new tracks from the songwriter.

The singer explains: "With this album, I really wanted to get back to songs… I wanted to get back to writing individual stories, as opposed to an extended narrative. I wanted each song to make you feel something. In the past, the songs have almost always been pretty dark. But this time, I was also able to channel some happier stuff and write a couple of actual feel-good songs. It's also more varied musically. I really made an effort to expand my sound, and to get out of my comfort zone as a songwriter."

Clash is able to premiere the video for new cut 'Modern Times'. Starkly honest yet musically ambitious, you can tune in below.
