Burial, the South Londoner and electronic producer, just released the tracks “Young Death” and “Nightmarket”, from his newest record, 12″ .
“Young Death” is very calming, with the sound of harps and bells and a very calming melody. It is the perfect song to listen to when coming back at home from a frustrating Monday and in need of unwinding. The sound is dirty, it almost sounds like an old vinyl and it has some Chinese vibes with the sound of bells taking over halfway through the song.
The harmonizing sets perfectly the mood. Towards the end of the song, the melody changes as the sound gets a bit darker.
“Nightmarket” is yet another experimental electronic song which incorporates the use of an electronic keyboard which makes you feel like you are part of a video game. Burial has definetely gone for the dirty vinyl sound, as the record sounds like it comes from an overused vinyl. Halfway through the keyboard kicks in, and the words “Come with me” create the whole idea of going to a journey into an unknown place.
Overall, Burial has released two amazing tracks. The producer knows exactly how to send the listener through a journey and how to affect the emotions of whoever is listening. We will all impatiently wait for the release of his album.
