Irish indie-rock band The Burma return with their latest single, ‘Holiday‘, shared on September 8th 2023, under The Burma Music Group. The trio have previously received support from the likes of Rolling Stone India, CLASH Magazine, NOTION Magazine, Hot Press, Atwood Magazine, and Medium.com/Pop Off, as well as featuring on RTÉ 2FM with Dan Hegarty and RTÉ Radio 1. Their new track debuted with support from EARMILK and is a highlight from their eagerly awaited album, Crazy Dreams & Cruel Realities.
‘Holiday’ is a serene yet up-beat track with an irresistibly optimistic and tranquil allure. Featuring a dreamy instrumental backing of laid-back guitars and mellow drumming, the vocals are gentle and relaxed, bathed in an almost ethereal and lazy daze. They’re immaculately befitting of the chilled vibe of the song, which the trio absolutely nailed. Topically, the lyrics touch on our mundane everyday existence and the need to run far, far away in times of stress in search of sunnier and greener pastures. Ultimately, ‘Holiday‘ implores the listener to just take a break, and is the perfect song for lazy summer days and nights.
Speaking on ‘Holiday’, the band has this to say: “It’s a more laid back, feel good Summer tune and we wanted to try and capture that within the production. When we were in the middle of writing our second album, we were trying to narrow down what songs would make the Final Cut. Holiday was a stand out track and an easy choice for all of us, not just as an album pick but as our main single.”
The Burma will be launching their album ‘Crazy Dreams & Cruel Realities’, with a live performance on Sat 14th October at St. Lukes, Cork. Get tickets HERE.
