Burs – ‘Holding Patterns’
Hailing from Toronto, Burs have released the stunning album ‘Holding Patterns’. It is an indie-folk release that needs to be heard this Autumn.
‘The Year Now’ gently swims into the sonic spectrum and evolves before the listener. ‘Lily’ is a stand-out song with soulful vocal performances, textured instrumentation and catchy melodies.
Moreover, ‘Nearly’ is a compelling song with layered vocals, wonderful acoustic guitars and intelligent chordal progressions. Also, ‘Hunger’ is an addictive track with a welcoming vibe and thought-provoking lyrics.
‘Hard Love’ is a track that builds before the listener with relatable lyrics and unpredictable chordal progressions, keeping the audience on their toes. Finally, ‘I Have a Light’ closes the release, and it will have you reaching for the repeat button.
In addition, we adore the mix, master and production of ‘Holding Patterns’. It is an album with a rich tapestry of instrumentation, melodies and harmonies that culminates in a body of work that sets the band as genre leaders.
Burs say about this fantastic release, “Holding Patterns is our debut full-length album, an independent record which finds us weaving three years of musical explorations into one cohesive meditation. The resulting piece is another step in our continuous search inward to relate to one another.”
They continue, “In discovering a unified voice, we strive to deliver a soundtrack for broad strokes of reflection, further aiming to gratify through cathartic performance.”

So make sure you add ‘Holding Patterns’ to your new music playlist this week. Burs are an exciting band, and we look forward to hearing what they will do next.
