Burn You Down - Blinding
London-based indie electronic group Blinding released their EP Emphasis earlier this year, and I have to say, I'm a bit sad that it took me this long to stumble across it, and the track "Burn You Down" in particular.
Check out the track below:
This is one of those tracks that I think you need to be listening to loud, and on your best speakers/headphones-- I am currently listening to "Burn You Down" in surround sound with it just loud enough to let the sub vibrate my feet a bit, and man...like this, "Burn You Down" is an experience of a track.
I love where the track starts, with a vast scale, and a bit of a forlorn feeling (lonely, perhaps), and it takes it time building through vocals and synth to it's lyric base, which infuse just a little bit of dark pop personality a the end (without losing it's dark, space-y sense of earlier). There are very few songs that can pull off a feeling of space the way Blinding do in "Burn You Down" and it is impressive as hell.
If you dig "Burn You Down", be sure to check out their EP; Emphasis provides a few different sounds from Blinding, with a bit of garage, a bit of downtempo, and even a little bit of a more club-ready electronic.
Y'all aren't going to believe this...but for what feels like the first time ever: both the October 2017 Apple Music Playlist and the October '17 Spotify Playlist have every track we talked about on them.
That also, for some reason, meant that it was a list that took a little time for me to get together, but once I got the first few songs figured out (always tricky trying to nail down how to start) everything seemed to click right into place.
If you're looking for any of our past playlists, be sure to check out a Friday DSD feature, or serach for theguysfrom on either Apple Music or Spotify!
See you tomorrow for our next Daily Song Drop!
