London born and based acoustic folk duo Burr Island release ‘Your Eyes, My Eyes’, via Left Foot Records. The track garnered support from UK-based music and fashion magazine CLASH Magazine and airplay BBC 6 Radio’s Cerys. ‘Later’ follows the recent release of their fifth single, ‘Our Home’.  The band has received praise from industry giants like Robert Plant and Noel Gallagher. With 250,000 streams across all platforms for their first four releases and their debut album on the way in 2024, the future looks promising for the Burr Island boys. 

‘Your Eyes, My Eyes’ is a sweet piano ballad full of feeling, an easy yet poignant listen. The pair offer beautiful lilting vocal lines with warm choral backing vocals straight out of a CSNY album. The track is timeless and tender, an ode to the devotion felt in all of love’s forms.

Burr Island divulged: “This is a love song for anyone who wants it. Whether you’re a grandmother cherishing the time with your young grandchild, friends with an unbreakable bond, star-crossed lovers sinking into each other’s eyes or somebody trying to communicate with the loved one they’ve lost. Like most of our songs, it was written on guitar and it remained a guitar song until the very last minute. We were never fully happy with the old version and felt the song needed a gentler tone. The brilliant Nikolaj Torp Larsen (The Specials) agreed to play piano for the new version and as soon as we heard his performance, we knew it was the one. We feel that sonically it’s added another texture to the album.”
