Central PA natives Younger Me are releasing a new EP called Coloring Book this week, and we’ve got the premiere of “Burn Alive” for you to check out below. The five-song record follows up the trio’s summer anthem “Swimming Pool.” With punchy drums and an infectious hook played on the crystalline Fender rhodes, “Burn Alive” is a tight pop single that boasts sing-along lyrics and harmonies in all the right places. From Younger Me’s Brent Gregory:
Burn alive is probably our most “pop” attempt to date, with fairly simplistic ideas compared to our other songs. It’s a bit of an homage to Motown, when pop music used to be loud & aggressive but still made you want to dance and left you with tunes stuck in your head. The lyrics are pretty straight forward. It’s a love song about burning with passion, and coming to the conclusion that you would literally rather set yourself on fire than ignore said love.
