April 11, 2024 Burr Island unveil a haunting new single, ‘Later’

Burr Island unveil a haunting new single, ‘Later’

London-based folk duo Burr Island released their latest single, ‘Later’, on March 29th, 2024 via Left Foot Records, following their fifth single ‘Our Home’. Comprising best friends Tom England & Oskar Porter, the duo has garnered praise from industry heavyweights like Robert Plant and Noel Gallagher. Their first four releases amassed 250,000 streams across platforms, with their debut album slated for 2024. Recorded at Kundalini Studios in Devon with Steve Cradock, their singles gained traction on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 2, BBC Introducing, and Radio X. They’ve toured as support for acts like Ocean Colour Scene, playing iconic venues such as Hammersmith Eventim Apollo & Barrowlands Ballroom and a sold-out show at Union Chapel supporting Paul Weller, along with two sell-out London headline gigs. Drawing inspiration from artists like Lennon/McCartney, Paul Simon, Crosby Stills & Nash, Nick Drake, The Beach Boys, and Cat Stevens, Burr Island has been likened to indie folk contemporaries like Fleet Foxes, Flyte, and Kings of Convenience.

‘Later’ is a tender composition overflowing with vivid imagery. Sung in ethereal harmony by the duo, its lyrics delicately delve into the poignant clarity that life’s end brings, contemplating the essence of our existence in this fleeting time. The gentle strumming of the guitar gracefully meanders through the song like a tranquil brook, while Jess Cox‘s strings—sweet, intricate, and emotive—immerse the tender track in profound emotion.

Burr Island shared: “‘Later, you will understand how truly good these times have been’ is faintly scrawled at the bottom corner of a large abstract piece of art hanging up in the building that Oskar used to live in. So faint, you could easily miss it. We’re glad Oskar didn’t, as those words unravelled into the song you hear today. ’Later’ is about being in the last moments of one’s life, when ‘twilight is paper thin’, and to look back at a life unlived.”

Oskar elaborated: “Around the same time I stumbled upon the hidden lyrics in the artwork, a friend of mine told me a personal story which I was incredibly struck by and that inspired us to write the rest of the song. When he was just eleven, his father had come home early from work, complaining of having chest pains. Hours later he had tragically died of a heart attack. What did he do in the last moments of his life? He started to confess. He confessed he had acted harshly and been cruel to people. I’ve often heard when one is at the end of their life, they can experience moments of true clarity, as if they are truly seeing for the first time. Hopefully this little song can be a reminder to us all to not wait until the moment of death to realise ‘how truly good these times have been’.”

Listen to Karmacoda’s ode to the risk and rapture of new love, ‘Unfolded (Put A Little Love)’

San Fransiscan trio KARMACODA have unveiled a new single, ‘Unfolded (Put a Little Love)’ on March 22nd, 2024 via Sola Musa Music. The track, receiving early support from NOTION Magazine, follows the recent release of their stirring single ‘Try At Me’ in January 2024. KARMACODA is composed of Jessica Ford (vocals), Brett Crockett aka B. (vocals and producer), and Japanese-American multi-instrumentalist Eric Matsuno (bass and unique elements). They have received support from respected online publications such as EARMILK, CLASH Magazine, Wonderland Magazine, and many more. Their music has received airplay on NPR Music and Irish National radio RTÉ 2XM’s Dan Hegarty. With an extensive discography, placements in several film and TV scores, and numerous awards, the trio has explored electronica, chill, trip-hop, R&B, rock, and dream pop in their two-decade career. KARMACODA continues to transcend genre boundaries, blending soulful R&B and jazz lounge music to create a unique sound reminiscent of Adele, Alicia Keys and Leona Lewis.

‘Unfolded (Put a Little Love)’ is an emotional tribute to the overwhelming sensation of falling in love. Its tender sound, featuring soulful keys, subtle jazz percussion, and romantic synth strings, transports listeners into a realm of affection. Jessica’s vocals soar passionately over this instrumentation, conveying the joy and intensity of new love.

Jessica revealed: It’s that feel good song with admittance of loving someone and letting them know how you feel. You can’t keep it a secret anymore. You gotta tell them, hoping they will feel the same. Mad crush vibes with a tinge of nervousness, when you finally let the cat out of the bag. Like “are you feeling what I’m feeling?” If so, let’s take this friendship to the next level, and I’m feeling excited so… put a little love in your heart and match me.”

Pink Sky unveil a scintillating single, ‘Incinerating’ featuring irreplica

LA-based husband-wife duo Pink Sky have teamed up with multi-instrumentalist irreplica on the lead single, ‘Incinerating’, from their forthcoming album Everything You Feel Is Real. For their live shows, Ryan and Angelica Hay are joined by a drummer and have enchanted audiences at major festivals such as SXSW, Midwest House, and Treefort Music Fest. The pair’s music spans a vast range of electronic music genres, from ambient to electronica to synth-based post-punk. Their intimate and emotive live shows persist as a defining feature of their artistry, showcasing their audio-visual project with performances in various settings and venues. Their previous albums, most notably Disenchantment and Total Devotion, have received critical acclaim, with features in Under The Radar Mag, Get Some Magazine, ADSR, Detroit News, and WDET Detroit NPR. Additionally, Pink Sky‘s remixes for artists like Taleen Kali, The French Tips, Virga, and Freddy Tyler Paul have further demonstrated their versatility and innovation in the electronic music scene.

‘Incinerating’ is a moody masterpiece driven by ricocheting industrial percussion, pulsing synths, and gritty bass, with ethereal, clear vocals floating through and tempering the distorted fray. The track narrates a journey of transformation and growth, drawing inspiration from 90s grunge, emotional upheaval, contemporary art, and dream revelations.

Pink Sky shared: “‘Incinerating’ is the story of someone who is falling out of balance and into a fiery state of agitation and chaos, an unseemly untended state, but rather than experience shame or frustration, the character instead is unaffected, without a care, that the secret garden she’d kept guarded inside for so long has overgrown and is now on display. What would have been previously horribly embarrassing and revealing is now treated as inevitable.”
