Swedish electronic music group Highly Sedated is prepping to release their debut album All We Have Is Now in just about one week. We are happy to premiere the second single from the LP, “Burn,” which will be released tomorrow, July 21.
“Burn” captures everything that makes Highly Sedated great. With five members, they have two vocalists who offer two very different sonic ranges – one brooding and the other more uplifting. The instrumental interchanges between foreboding synths and a very danceable beat. The song is filled with these yin and yang-like oppositions like, “Head telling me to turn around, heart telling me to burn it down,” or later on “set fire to the shade, turn night into day.”
The 12-track LP will be released via Steve Angello’s Size Records, normally associated with festival bangers, but the label takes a step back for something slower and based around songwriting. The album will be released on July 28. Stream “Burn” below.
