Bio

This Sydney based Alternative Pop duo blur the lines between music for the heart and music for the dancefloor. With an unapologetic love of all things magical and melancholy, the duo are a melting pot of darkness and light. Drawing on some extreme juxtapositions from a childhood of Punk Rock, Rnb, Music Theatre and Soul, Kabusii and Bronte Maree wear their heart on their sleeve and build their songs from a feeling upwards.

Now, Dominic Cabusi and Bronte Maree O'Neill (Maari) present their very first full Film score and Soundtrack to ‘The Legend of The Five;’ out in Cinemas Australia wide- including Events Cinemas, Village Cinemas and various Independents. Their two title tracks; ‘A Million Wishes’ and ‘Home’ touch on friendship, romance, belonging and rising from the darkness in yourself. Built layer by layer using the script and characters, you’ll hear vocal synths, choirs, tribal drums and intricate piano features. Scoring and writing for ‘The Legend of The Five’ allowed the duo to indulge in their love of painting to an emotion more than ever before, and from this experience they take some new instrumental layers to add to their wall of sound and a flair for desolation and romance.

The tracks were recorded in the Duo’s humble Inner West Studio before being mixed by Simon Cohen (Justin Bieber, Vera Blue, Glades) and Mastered by Ben Feggans (Flume, Hayden James, Miami Horror).

Since the birth of Maari three years ago, they’ve shared the stage with the likes of North East Party House, Wafia, E^st and Lamalo and have received international radio play and attention from blogs such as Pilerats, Auspop, and Wonky Sensitive. Their Music Videos have been featured at Sydney Fringe Festival's Clipped.Tv event, Parramatta Lanes Festival and on MTV's program 'MTV Upload.’

After some serious studio time, the duo are now getting ready to bring you their first body of work. Playing on themes of toxicity, love, anger and transitions… Maari’s most raw, angsty tracks are yet to come.

those subtle breakbeats in the chorus add an extra layer of energy that I wasn't ready for! your crystal clear vocals are perfectly situated atop these glossy electro-pop beats.

You know you've got the production right when you feel it right in the middle of your chest. That pulsing synth is magic.

Glossy pop production and a vocal that belts the roof off your vehicle - and it ain't even a convertible.
