Indie band The Burma have shared latest single ‘Sleepers’, and let’s just say this psychedelic-infused gem will have you singing along with its anthemic-like lyrics within an instant. Not heavy on the listener’s palette with its smooth and light indie production, one could easily think back on days of innocence, youth and maybe a little bit of rebellion.
The band previously shared their excitement about unveiling sharing ‘Sleepers’ on social media: “Sleepers” is probably our favourite song we’ve recorded as a band to date and we’ve been loving playing it live! “
A band that enjoys crafting a nostalgia-driven and indie infused sound , their lyrics are always relatable in some way and that is what makes this band one to watch. This track was also mastered by Richard Dowling who has worked with world famous rock and alternative acts that include David Bowie and Foo Fighters to name a few.
Life is more than just a runway show or performance stage with The Assist’s latest track ‘Television Kid’. An indie track that will have you chained to its rhythm, the band wrote this song about all those people constantly chasing attention and fame. As an effect, they lose their sense of reality and end up spiraling, losing things that they hold close to their heart in the process. The band have been going strong independently since their inception in 2014, performing alongside acts like Blossoms and Black Honey. Not feeling the need to conform to a certain sound, the act experiment with hip-hop, disco textures, and any topic their heart desires – badass.
Vocalist Mikey shares:“Ambition is an admirable trait and I’m a strong advocate for having dreams that we live and die by. However, it is important to ensure that whilst chasing our dreams we are aware of the bigger picture that is life. In order to grow and maintain a realistic outlook on life it is important to acknowledge that defeat is very much possible and as individuals we aren’t invincible.”
Nostalgic for days spent in high school blasting anthemic emo music through your headphones as you walk down the hallway to your next class? We feel the same way too, and wish we could go back to those carefree days when you didn’t have to worry about making ends meet. Giant Sky’s latest album Not Today via Bloody Sunset Records is an instant nostalgia train, reminding the listener of their days spent being a carefree adolescent.
Previously featured on iGuitar and on RCRD LBL with song ‘Snow’, we mentioned: “Lyrics like “The world goes crazy, but you and I remain the same/ There’s no way that I can go into the void of my own” spreads a message of light & connection in times of darkness. One can easily fold and let physical isolation rob you of your sanity and happiness. Giant Sky’s ‘Snow’ reminds one that no true connection is ever lost if it is real.”
Listening to this entire album one will be two tissues away from destroying a packed box for sure. This album covers feelings of isolation, acceptance and finding a home to call your own. A lot of heart is poured into this work and its energetic production is evident in each track and essentially is what a memorable indie-rock hit consists of. Let your hair down and shake along to the beat of Giant Sky – A band with character and worth the listen in a time of much chaos.
