K-BUST // “FEARLESS” – AN ALBUM REVIEW
Hey, music lovers! 🙂
It’s Brittney, Today I’m back with two more reviews. This one is of a up and coming pop artist “K-Bust”. Her album “Fearless” was released today (3/9/18). Her debut album is full decadent Electro-pop numbers that align well with her raspy rocker voice. Which, by the way has a quiet power to it. Each track has many electronic elements woven in and out dramatically. Very reminiscent of 80s Power-Pop and 90s Euro dance numbers. And her vocals add the perfect amount of grit to give the songs a needed edge. So they never cross into bubblegum territory. The best of all is K-Busts’ lyrics, which are full of emotion and at times heavy. But are very relatable as they are about life, love, lust and yearning. Even when she’s using her most abstract and atmospheric lyrics or analogies it’s still comes across very well, as it’s all in the feeling. I think a lot of that has to do with how she has portrayed her voice on her “Fearless” record. It does bring to mind many of the females of rock in the 80’s such as Pat Benatar. Which is quite notable seeing as one of the standout tracks on the record is the cover of Pat Benatar “Love Is a Battlefield”. Although similar in vocal tonality it’s unlike the original in other ways. Other standout tracks for me are, “Over”, “Shoot”, “That Sound”, “Just a Simple Taste” and “Tonight”.
