Burntfield is a Helsinki based formation making Melodic Rock. They released an EP called “Cold Heat” last year, but return this year with a new single called: “My Grief”.
Some soothing piano introduces us to this song, a warm intro that sets the atmosphere, the band did not hold back on bringing these warm elements together as also some strings are coming in. The whole creates a certain tension that reminded me of Therapy?’s “Diane” although the whole is perhaps emotional in a different way. The song self is easy listening. Catchy lyrics, that bring the story out there, underline the feeling that is created with the music. The melancholy suits well, “My Grief” is a song that will address many, a common feeling, so many will find comfort in it.
The band has created also a video to give the listener also a visual experience. You can watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Omj72hntXE8
All concluding, “My Grief” is fine single for this Finnish band, it shows what the guys are up to and the confidential feeling it brings, a soothing touch even, will encourage people to keep an eye on these guys. Well done.
