Christmas is upon us. Don't forget to go get our presents right? k. We are finishing up vocals this week on the new material. Which means we should have a new song up for your listening in the very near future.
So keep an eye on this space for January when we should have some new music!
So last Monday we started recording for our new EP. We are concentrating on the first single from the EP at the moment which should be out in January.
We are very excited to be working with Matt Bartlem at Loose Stones Studios on the Gold Coast. Matt has worked with some amazing bands including Karnivool, Sunk Loto, Avalon Drive, Repeat Offender and more recently Dead Letter Circus. We also have Tyse Lee doing the majority of tracking and he is definitely getting the best out of us!
This is the first time we have ever worked with a producer and it's a grueling but very rewarding process.
Hopefully we will have some photo/video updates soon and we will update this blog as thing's progress!
Current mood:accomplishedSince emerging onto the local Brisbane scene, playing their debut show at Thriller and winning fans and supporters over from that very first night, dedicated four-piece Burning Brooklyn have hardly had time to stop since their formation in late 2008.
This momentum continues now eighteen months down the track with the release of their forthcoming Single, All About You. Recorded at Tremor Studios in Pottsville NSW, it sees Burning Brooklyn return to the same studio they recorded their Debut EP, Where The Heart Stops the previous year. With this past history and their combined studio experience, Burning Brooklyn with the talents of engineer and friend Jared Doevendans, have emerged to bring forth three new songs that concrete exactly what the band want to represent.
Mastered by Troy Glessner (Anberlin, Death Cab For Cutie, Underoath) from Spectre Studios in the USA, the lead track, All About You sees Burning Brooklyn kick off the next stage of their career with a vocally driven, solid rock song ready to impress new and already faithful fans.
Having supported bands such as Haste The Day, Blessed By A Broken Heart and Fear Before, all before their first birthday, Burning Brooklyn are looking to step up even more with 3 new releases throughout 2010. With relentless compassion they are pushing their love of music.
Current mood:happyKILL YOUR STEREOThis EP definitely caught me by surprise. Being just in the newborn stages of their career (they formed in October ‘08) Burning Brooklyn have cited their influences as Anberlin and Taking Back Sunday, and they’re definitely evident in the EP ‘Where the Heart Stops’.Although it feels as if there’s something missing musically, (a slightly dirtier or maybe heavier sound would have been nice – similar to A Day To Remember), this is one of the best unsigned Australian alternative-rock bands I’ve heard in a while.
They manage to deliver a fairly solid 7-track EP, with some definite stand out songs. ‘Sleepless’ is one, a melancholy pseudo-ballad and the single ‘Half Past Easy’ which will inevitably get stuck in your head after the first few listens.These tracks manage to encapsulate elements of both pop-punk and hardcore smoothly and almost effortlessly to create an enjoyable music experience.Although it’s rough, and there’s definitely a lot of work needed, there is something there.The only gripe is the final track ‘Untitled’ which is listed as being 13.21 minutes long, although is completely blank until 10 minutes in. Even then you’re just treated to a different version of the EPs opening track ‘Where the Heart Stops’ – Maybe they just needed to fill in time, I don’t know.Having already managed to gather a stable following of loyal fans and a reputation for being fantastic live, I’d say that these guys are something to start looking out for.
CONCLUSION.Look out for these guys – they’re something to watch.KILL YOUR STEREO
The first thing that strikes you about Burning Brooklyn's six track EP ‘Where the Heart Stops’, is that it is brilliant driving music. It’s bright, fast and full of momentum, and every song has a sweet, precise punch that's intensely satisfying. With a sound reminiscent of pop-punk-meets-hardcore bands like Jimmy Eat World, the thick crunch of the rhythm guitar underlies strong vocal melodies. The end result is a surprisingly polished package that promises great things to come from this local four-piece outfit.'Where the Heart Stops' makes for a strong opener to the EP. 'Half Past Easy', the song with the most airplay currently, is arguably the strongest track on the album. It switches between tempos effortlessly, demonstrating growing musical and song writing talent — an impression reinforced by 'The Straw'. 'Your Introduction' and 'The Raven' pick right back up into solid guitar-wrenching grooves only to ease into 'Sleepless', a sonically rich track that aches with regret.There is a seventh hidden track on the EP, which is over 13 minutes long. If you pick up this EP, tick your audio player forward to the ten minute mark — that's where a death metal-ish reprise of 'Where the Heart Stops' appears. It's hard to tell if it was recorded for fun, or if it was some kind of work shopped practice piece helping shape the final version of the track. At any rate, it's fun for a couple of listens, and then gets a bit old. Nevertheless, this first EP from Burning Brooklyn is a solid offering, definitely worth a listen.
