The Burning Feathers - a way in EP (2024)

The Burning Feathers, have released their debut EP, "A Way In.
The work showcases the London band's powerful and selection of old-school alt-rock compositions, including previously released hits such as 'Start of an End' and 'Surface of the Moon (click for the article)'. The EP will also include a new song, very melodic, called 'A Way In', which is about hope and the yearning for something better. 

The EP is comprised of  5 songs for 20 minutes of music. The opener "Start of an end", is upbeat, with great riffs, catchy vocals and a tasty solo section too. A very good choice as an opener and a great tune.  The second track is "Surface of the Moon". "It's about frustration with selfish people who aren't aware of those around them", the band described. The pure grunge riff at the start, along with the song's overall mood, is captivating. It's performed superbly, offering both melody and a punchy edge.

Peculiar verses of "Bottom of the Well", which evolves into a very enjoyable and classy ballad during the chorus and another grungy twist in the middle of the song. A very interesting one, definitely something different and surprising. The Title track is very melodic and relaxed in the first half but becomes lively in the second one. I love the bass lines, the dynamic drumming and the solos.  The final track "Can't Escape from the Sun" features fantastic guitar riffs and, once again, a super catchy chorus. Probably my favourite one of the EP, if I have to choose one.

This is a quality EP, where you can hear lots of contaminations and all the influences by the different members of the band, mixing different moods and musical genres. The performance is absolutely spot on and the production is great.

The Burning Feathers has already performed at sold-out performances in London and plans to release new songs throughout the year. They will promote the release with a free acoustic event at The King & Queen in Fitzrovia on Friday, May 10th (onstage at 9pm), so make sure you get there if you are in the area.
