New Noise Magazine is pleased to be bringing forth the premiere of “Yuzi” by Burnt Tapes. The song is the debut single off of the upcoming record, Never Better, out on February 22nd via Wiretap Records (U.S.) & Lockjaw Records (U.K.). The track’s gritty tone weaves through reflective cleans and bursting hooks. The track has an accompanied music video, which can be seen below.
“‘Yuzi’ is about putting the puzzle of yourself back together after the end of a relationship you thought defined you. That’s kinda the theme throughout our songs in many ways, and the video ties in a lot of those themes but mainly its about finding a place where you can finally find some peace.” Burnt Tapes
The Burnt Tapes are a four piece punk/emo band based in London, UK.
Members of the band have known each other since they were teenagers, having grown up together in Athens, Greece before settling in London, and forming the band in 2014. Their gruff hook laden sound has drawn comparisons to bands like Hot Water Music, Jawbreaker and The Lawrence Arms. In 2017 they released their first EP Alterations (Lockjaw Records/Umlaut Records).
The band recorded their debut LP Never Better at legendary studio The Ranch (Creeper, Gnarwolves, Boston Manor).
