The White Buffalo Videos
The White Buffalo is in possession of one of the most unique, dream-haunting voices we've heard in quite some time, so that's why ARTISTdirect.com has happily partnered with the singer to premiere the video for his song "Wish It Was True" from his debut album Once Upon a Time in the West, due out February 28, 2012.
Once you take a listen to the song and watch the arresting video, we're confident that you will become a fan of The White Buffalo, too.
This memorable video is steeped in decidedly Americana images, featuring The White Buffalo himself laying on a sheet-less mattress in a wood-panelled, ramshackle hotel room, singing his poignant words. The scenes are spliced with footage of him performing, strumming his guitar and walking in the desert, on the cracked earth, carrying an American flag and waxing poetic about his father. There is also a little boy in the video as well who may or may not be the lyrical protagonist as a child. That's up to you to interpret as you watch the video.
With his long hair, fuzzy beard and imposing stature, The White Buffalo looks like a formidable presence, and he is, but it's because of his powerful, emotionally effecting voice, not his posture.
There are also scenes of a little boy in a junkyard and The White Buffalo in an abandoned, rundown shell of school bus.
The video unfolds in cinematic fashion, playing out like a mini-movie with a resonant soundtrack.
We hope you enjoy the video for 'Wish It Was True' as much as we did. Watch it now.
