The Belle Jar- Union Station
Mar 5, 2014
Lyrically, vocally and musically, Busby Marou is an extremely strong singer-songwriter duo from Australia. Their self-titled debut album dropped recently and was well received in their home country and it is starting to make waves here in the states as well.
The duo of Tom Busby and Jason Marou create an indie-esque rock sound with lots of layers and big warm sounds coming from a multitude instruments. The tracks truly do vary as some of them are a simple electronic and acoustic guitar duet with very mellow harmonies, where other tracks incorporate an old American west sound with harmonicas and banjos in some tracks.
The album as a whole is striking. It toes the line of many different genres, but never fully identifies into just one. They use elements of country; combine them with strands of basic indie acoustic, Busby Marou is a fantastic display of musicality and melodious amicable. acoustic and tie it all together with wonderfully compelling lyrics.
