Burniscous put an RnB trap pop spin on Sam Smith’s heartfelt hit, ‘Kids Again’.

A cover of Sam Smith’s wistful hit ‘Kids Again’ has joined alt-pop artist Burniscous’ collection of original tracks; it’s safe to say he well and truly made the single his own.

By moving away from the archetypal contemporary pop ballad mould and veering into the realms of EDM RnB Pop with a melancholic cloud rap twist, the cover increases the potency of the evocative sting while introducing the heartfelt lyrics to a brand-new audience. The excessive use of vocal reverb might be a little too much for some, but not for the thousands of people who have Burniscous firmly affixed to their radar and appreciate the echo of his vulnerable and raw tracks.

Burniscous’ cover of Kids Again is now available to stream via Soundcloud.

Celebrate the end of 2020 with Burniscous’ darkly fierce single “The Years Almost Over”

Celebrate the prospect of 2020 ending with breaking Hip Hop artist Burniscous’ latest drop “The Years Almost Over”. With plenty of space between the lyrics, each of the lines delivered will hit with sonorous impact.

If New Year’s Eve always leaves you laden with insidious emotion, this atmospherically fierce track is the perfect mix to fall into and allow the nihilistic tones to resonate with your own.

With an accessible old-school production which pays ode to ’80s and 90s Hip Hop and the visceral distinction found in Burniscous’ bars, it’s hard not to hear the commercial potential in the artist’s unapologetically authentic sound. You’ll want them on your radar sooner than later.

You can check out The Years Almost Over by heading over to Spotify.
