With 'Into the Wilderness', Burning Hearts continue their rise to prominence as chroniclers of the harsh, arctic north. 'Into the Wilderness' is an EP that follows their 2009 album 'Aboa Sleeping', a record full of imaginative and flawless melodies, the kind that you can only really half imagine or make out when listening to any other dream-pop band. A combination and perfect balance between a feeling of alienation from the world but at the same time an understanding of it's desperate beauty is what informs this music. Musically they are warm synths, percussive guitars and inviting bass lines. You might feel as though you have heard their music before but your not sure of when or where and each song plays out with such ease that it's gone before you've realised it;s there; like a train running, engines off, silently through a station. As a result they are one of those rare groups that produce music that seems to have sprang from the head of Zeus, fully and perfectly formed.
Available for pre-order now on Shelflife Records and out on June 21st.
Here's the title track with a perfectly complimentary video -
