Why make one comeback when you can make some waves with a compelling double whammy? It’s a tactic that will leave Busty and the Bass in good stead as they pre-empt their as-of-yet untitled forthcoming sophomore album with new singles “Clouds” and “Summer”.

Following the release of this year’s earlier outing “Baggy Eyed Dopeman” - a toe-tapping and bouncy bit of jazz and funk - “Clouds” takes a slower, more forgiving pace. Leaning into that penchant for jazz, the track finds its leisurely flow with its slumbering bassline and sparse percussion, drawing in chiming keys, smatterings of brass and warbling talk box.

Teaming up with Moonchild’s Amber Navran, the heartfelt vocals of the singer and Busty and the Bass’ Nick Ferraro only reinforce that dreamy, summery sound. You can practically feel the sun’s rays, as we recline in its heat.

“Clouds” and “Summer” are both available now via Arts & Crafts. Follow Busty and the Bass on Facebook.
