Busy Kingdom made their debut on the Melbourne music scene in 2012 and quickly built a reputation for having lively feel good songs and a live energy that will get you moving.
“Great blues-rock vocals from the fronting brothers combined with solid bass lines and simple, yet effective drumbeats that combine to form raw rock music clearly ready for bigger crowds and dedicated fans” (theaureview.com)
Armed with the belief that Australia is more than ready to embrace the unique sound of Busy Kingdom’s own dynamic brand of Melodic Rock, brothers Brendan and Michael Etherington (vocals, guitars, songwriting), along with bassist Curtis Ardolino and drummer, Alex Barnard are preparing to release their new single 'Stranger Than Fiction'.
The entire song was written and recorded live at Naked Molerat Studios, Melbourne by the lads within 2 hours of having the idea. They succeeded in capturing a spontaneous vibe and energy similar to The Libertines or The Clash.
“The aim was to write a song that told a whole short story in just a few short verses. The song is themed around a mysterious character entering a small town one night, bewildering townspeople who didn’t believe he could perform black magic and then disappearing into the night.”
- Michael Etherington
