I’d be lying if I told you that the first time I heard the name Busby Marou, I was able to successfully repeat it without sounding like I was completely dyslexic .. Bushby Mawho … Buzbee Banana Who ?… Bushee Mashed Banannas ?
Anyway, I’ve been practiscing at home and can now successfully say Busby Marou and actually sound like I know what I’m talking about. Thankfully this is the case because I’ve completely fallen for this bands oh so Australian sound and have a feeling I’ll be saying their name over and over. Their self titled debut album was released only just a week ago and I think I have played it at least 46 times in its entirety at the studio. No one’s tired of it yet.
Hailing from Rockhampton, this group of boys have a folksy sound that is melodic, sweet and deceivingly deep. The first track off the album ” All of You” definitely gave me a little heart flutter. Youngie, my latest right hand woman, and I have both already exclaimed that this is our “ favvvvouuuurite song … sigh ” a number of times. I even flicked this one onto repeat the other night when it was just the two of us left in the studio so we could turn it up loud and sigh in unison. We were definitely having a moment.
The boys just kicked off an east coast tour on Friday night in Brisbane and are going to end up in Sydney on Saturday 23rd July playing at Spectrum. That’s the best news I’ve heard all week!
Peace & New Music
