Busty and the Bass is a unique band with a unique sound. With an impressive nine members in the band, they mix various genres together into what they call electrosoul with a bit of hip hop and dance thrown in as well. Based in Montreal, the band released their EP ‘Glam’ earlier this year in June. The eight tracks show off their different influences and talents and why they deserved the CBC Music and TD Rock Your Campus contest in 2014.

It’s impossible to take in the album in its entirety on the first listen. You’ll find things you didn’t notice before as you keep listening, and trust me, you will want to keep listening. At first I really liked the song “The Real”, which was released as a single. The instruments mesh with the vocals so well and complement each other. The song has a very summertime vibe to it. “Right Kind” has an almost big bad feel to it with the various horns in the background but then you get the twist of the vocals. Once you think you know what to expect from the song, it tricks you in the best way possible. The closing song, “Tryna Find Myself” is another song I quite enjoyed on the EP simply because it combines different components in a way you don’t expect.

This is an EP that you’re going to have to listen to more than once to appreciate the different aspects of the songs and you’ll enjoy every minute of it. I wasn’t very sure in the beginning how much I would like the EP but I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with the work that went into the music.

Rating: 4.5/5
