Anonymous Australian hip hop collective ROYBOY return to the spotlight with their first release of the year in ‘BUSY’, a brooding single with deepened electronic instrumentation bubbling away at the surface that provides a very intriguing soundscape.
‘BUSY’ provides plenty of mysteriousness in its approach, with a heavy alliance on hard hitting beats punching their way through the mix alongside the booming bass that sets a solid foundation for the restrained vocals to move their way through in a swift yet memorable manner.
“We made Busy as a club anthem for the homebody. Sometimes the thought of going out with a bunch of half-friends doesn’t come close to locking down, making music, filling up your own bucket with ice and drinks, and being alone – and that’s what we’re celebrating in this song. The irony of the EDM soundscape contrasted by lyrics of being solitary is what we wanted to be at the forefront of the song, expressing the desire to “worship my sub speaker” and pleading “not to hit up my phone with any of your weekend demands.” – ROYBOY
