Burn Before Reading – Markers

NAME: Burn Before Reading
SINGLE: Markers
DATE: 14June2010

LABEL: Fierce Panda


FIVE WORD REVIEW: Cool, captivating indie floor filler

LOCATION: Guildford

LINE UP: Barney (guitar, vocals), Garry (drums), Al (bass), Dan (guitar)

WHAT’S THE STORY?: ‘Markers’ feels familiar from the first listen, but this is not to call it unoriginal; it draws on what made the indie disco so danceable five years ago: a bloody good chorus. Burn Before reading follow in the footsteps of The Killers ‘Mr Brightside’ and The Libertines ‘Up The Bracket’ and deliver this to a new set of indie-scenesters. Burn Before Reading have in ‘Markers’ a mature but playful single that leaves the listener with high expectations for what’s to come.

SOUNDS LIKE: The best dressed piece of indie music since Franz Ferdinand’s ‘Take Me Out’.

YOU’LL LIKE THIS IF: You miss the early 2000’s breed of respectable indie star, the sort who wears a nice tie but isn’t too cool to stomp around the stage like a lunatic when the play live.
