While every track on up and coming Irish-based act Alta Cura’s debut EP is a testament to the collective talent from the 5-piece powerhouse, there is absolutely no better introduction to their indulgently fresh style than their standout single “Burn”.
With some freeform instrumental dabbling serving as a misguiding Jazzy prelude, the track evolves into some of the most powerful progressive experimental Rock I’ve heard this side of the 00s. Any fans of Against Me! are definitely going to want to pay attention thanks to the gritty unrestrained bite of the lyrics.
The intricacy alongside ingenuity of Burn goes beyond any amount of expectation, as the single treats you to an earworm of a melody that isn’t going to burrow its way out until long after the single has faded out.
Every guitarist listening to Burn is going to end up wishing they came up with that riff themselves. Yes, it really is that infectious.
