Their new roots-infused, americana track was produced by Canadian music powerhouses Mike Young (bassist – Mother Mother), and co-engineered by Karl Dicaire (Mother Mother, Iskwe, Big Wreck). Comprised of Sarah McArthur and Bobby McAloney, Focus Your Audio is a duo that focuses heavily on the integrity of a song. Often compared to Fleetwood Mac and Lady A, the two musicians have an Americana/Roots/alt-country sound that is hard to define but easy to listen to. ” - Bad Parade

"Over There" Review

Iconic Canadian Singer-songwriter Ron Sexsmith

"Nice Work guys! I thought the song and the production were very imagined and suited for each other. Had a nice contemporary vibe." 

 

A gorgeous confection of vocal & instrumental, this very strong stylish song (Over There) is an indicator of the upward trajectory that Focus Your Audio are on. Shades of Hem, which is no bad thing, but this is all their own work. Beautiful production, where everything is allowed to breathe. Lovely indeed.” - Oliver Sweeney

Indie Week 2020 - Benjamin Gibson Toronto, ON - January 25, 2021

"Bobby McAloney and Sarah McArthur are two artists from Vancouver British Columbia and two halves of Focus Your Audio. The team describes their music as somewhere between folk, Americana, and good old-fashioned rock and roll. The mix of sounds and the band’s unique and beautiful result is probably a result of the two’s unique upbringings."

Indie Week 2020 Coverage - Deb Draper Peterborough, ON - January 05, 2021

"One of the last connections I made on November 12th was with artist Bobby McAloney of Focus Your Audio. He is based from Vancouver, BC with his duo which also features no stranger to Bobcaygeon, with Sarah McArthur. Their flavor is a seamless weave of folk, Americana, and rock and roll. I got to throw a question Bobby’s way and this is how it went..."

On Our Radar: Focus Your Audio VANCOUVER, BC - December 11, 2020

"The track delivers a strain of country that might be described as ethereal gothic, with thunderclap percussion and blackheart guitar leavened by McCarthur’s angels-and-whiskey vocals. The sunfaded video, beautifully shot by Jonathan Fluevog, smartly keeps things simple—forget clichés like pushing the washing machine down the stairs and smashing everything including the family urn, what we get is two people connecting in glorious nature."

Quarantine Songs - Toronto, On December 5, 2020

“Over There” is a song about a disagreement – a truthful peek into the lives of the couple who make music together. Focus Your Audio both lyrically and sonically takes the listener through the unsaid aspects of a disagreement with music that matches the emotion of the song. The anthemic chorus, Sarah’s undeniable vocal and lyrical talent and Bobby’s musicianship all tie harmoniously together.

We had the opportunity to ask Focus Your Audio a few questions about the new video and what they’ve got coming up next, click below to watch “Over There” and keep scrolling for our interview!
