Burns Out Bright – Save Yourself A Lifetime

Burns Out Bright have a certain charm about them that meant I didn’t write them off as quickly as I might another band of the same style. I’m just a sucker for good song titles. What I’m not a sucker for though is identikit American indie rock – and there is a lot of it about these days – a category that Burns Out Bright are teetering on the edge of, saved only by quite raw production, the odd cool idea and a quirky humour.

  • If you’re a fan of Deep Elm Records or bands like The Ataris and Fall Out Boy you’ll recognise this sound. If you’re a Deep Elm veteran then you’ll probably already have something better in your collection (I’d go for Camber) but if you’re new to all this then you could do a hell of a lot worse than this band. They’ve got enough hooks and good melodies to appeal to the masses and enough diversity of style to keep you interested in the long term.
