“When the time came to step up to the stage and do what we loved the most, we just knew that no matter what the outcome, we were going to be our normal, overly-energetic selves and enjoy the moment. Then our musical intro hit, an eerie piano piece with a simple vocal track, and the curtains opened. That is the moment my eyes welled up and I almost lost it.”
Music Mayhem has the exclusive first listen of K-Bust‘s third single release, “Torn”, off the forthcoming March 9th album, Fearless. This new single is one of K-Bust’s darkest songs that was produced for Fearless.
K-Bust says “Torn” is “one of my favorites of the album for the intense emotions it makes me feel every time I listen to it. It’s about the losing of oneself to another. Giving all we have in a relationship and getting nothing in return, leaving us empty handed. Torn talks about reaching a point of no return, when we realize that we’ve been in a toxic and abusive relationship for too long and that is time to put an end to it.That’s what the music, around it, is all about; an explosion of feelings and emotions, coming from a very dark place, from anger and sadness.“

“Earlier this year, our Oakland-based Motown soul and funk band Trace Repeat took on the ambitious task of printing our new album “The Oaktown Sound” on CD and 12-inch vinyl. Two master revisions, countless artwork updates, three months of manufacturing time, and $4,000 worth of debt later, we finally had our record ready to sell on yet another form of extinct media. Because let’s face it. We all end up listening on Spotify anyway, right?”
