Wuzy Bambussy is a musical trio based in the beating heart of England’s West Country, featuring songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Nikolai Jones, Bristolian chanteuse Kat Harrison and guitarist Iggy Deverall. Independently producing, recording and mixing their work, they have crafted a distinctive sound that fuses indie pop with rhythmic sass.

Renowned for their eclectic, beatific soundtrack, Wuzy Bambussy seamlessly blends indie pop with rhythmic flair, encompassing funk, folk, indie rock and electronica with jazzy undertones.

Just Shy Of Why makes for the perfect road trip rock anthem. Choppy riffs collide beautifully with swaggering brass, all driven by a propulsive rhythm section and Kat’s sultry, ethereal voice.

The lyrics tell the story of a dysfunctional relationship breakdown, followed by salvation and the promise of new beginnings. The single’s cover artwork, portraying a peachy sunset in a car’s side view mirror, symbolises a sense of leaving it all behind and hitting the open road.

The single marks the seventh release in a ten-part series that Wuzy Bambussy has released monthly throughout 2023 since March. Previous tracks in the series include What Became of You?, Uncharted and  Yesterday’s Shoes, which deservedly earned a spot on the BBC Introducing Mixtape in September 2023. This is the second time Wuzy Bambussy has been featured during their batch of single releases.

Just Shy Of Why stands out as a dreamy, jazzy alt-pop delight, with Kat’s irresistibly nonchalant delivery on the parting words, ‘See ya’, lingering in the listener’s mind long after the final notes have been played.

It’s another triumphant addition to Wuzy Bambussy’s rapidly growing and widely admired back catalogue. They are currently writing at a frenetic pace for several releases next year, carving their place in the UK independent music world and giving us something to eagerly anticipate in 2024.
