This Burning Age has shared a new cover of Sia’s ‘Elastic Heart’, with an electrifying video to boot.
Following on from their first album and highly regarded four EP cycle, This Burning Age are now mining their Electro influences with a cover of Sia’s ‘Elastic Heart’. Compulsive and vital, their cover deconstructs the original without losing any of its heart, deftly walking that fine between originality and imitation with confidence, nuance and invention to create their own unique take on this much loved track. The accompanying video draws on themes of toxic internet culture, specifically on Twitter where people find it easy to jump on the bandwagon.
The product of frontman and writer, Friday, This Burning Age’s music is violently beautiful, bridging the “Electro-Rock” divide with startling finesse. With a desire to keep everything as “in-house” as possible, every aspect of their output is carefully curated by the band, from artwork and videos through to recording and eventual release. Drawing influence from Nu-Wave, Post-punk, Industrial and Synth-Pop, this Birmingham four-piece create music that’s visceral, emotive and electrifying.
