The Grandiose, Brainy Dance Pop Of Busty And The Bass

Maybe you all have noticed, but premieres have become a major part of the site again. We here at Baeble are passionate about providing a platform for up & coming artists that we love to share their work. But we aren't being selfless. We know that every now & then we'll stumble upon an act destined for greatness. Give it six months, and every indie music lover on the planet will know Busty and the Bass.

We have the U.S. premiere of the video for the Canadian nine-piece's "Models," and it isn't simply one of the best singles I've heard this week. It isn't one of the best singles I've heard this month. It's easily one of the best singles of 2015 so far. Imagine a world where Chromeo, Vampire Weekend, and Capital Cities got together to raise an adopted Canadian child but you stripped away all of the occasionally grating irony of any of those acts, and you have the horn-driven, pop grandiosity -- with a touch of R&B for good measure -- of "Models."

I wish the track were on Spotify so I could put it on repeat for about the next two months. This is a party jam with brains, and its self-aware video knows just how on the cusp Busty and the Bass are. If you aren't out of your chair dancing by the time the guitar/horn breakdown hits, you need to turn in your music loving card.
