Busseys deliver infectious indie-rock perfection on ‘Pyjama Party’

There’s something immediately infectious about Busseys. In a very short amount of time, the Adelaide-based outfit have carved out a sound that feels simultaneously fun-loving and emotionally cathartic; it’s driven by earnest indie-rock but stretches into euphoric sonic territories.

With the release of their debut EP, Pyjama Party, the group have immediately established their penchant for crafting deeply addictive gems of sound. If you’re not already across this band, we strongly recommend you change that.

On their debut EP, Pyjama Party, Adelaide-based trio Busseys serve up a six-track collection of infectious indie-rock gems.

All throughout the new EP, Busseys—made up of vocalist/guitarist Dan Holland, bassist Brock Evans, and drummer Xavier Redden—glide through a dynamic blend of indie-rock and pop, delivering something that feels equal parts familiar and fresh. With jubilant vocal hooks and textured, jangly instrumental arrangements, Pyjama Party is bursting at the seams with musical energy.

While each of the EPs six songs feed into an overarching sonic vision, they also flaunt the band’s incredible versatility. EP opener Straw Castles is a punchy, hook-driven indie belter, while Lazy is a slow-burning and woozy, psych-tinged number.

Looney is a standout, showcasing the band’s knack for writing huge choruses. And seriously, these guys really know how to write a chorus. By the time the EP’s title track, Pyjama Party, reaches its final moments, you’ll be completely hooked on this South Australian outfit.

These may still be early days for Busseys, but judging by the quality of everything we’ve heard so far, I think we can safely expect plenty more great tunes in the near future. In the meantime, do yourself a favour and listen to the new EP above.
