The Burma’s music video to their latest single,”When You’re Gone” has been released via Spooner records. The band has supported acts such as The Academic, The Strypes and Delorentos. Their upcoming tour locations include London, UK, and all over Ireland. Their first song release ‘Quicksand’ in 2018 generated buzz, with long-running radio play.
The band members consisting of Tony O’Donovan (vocals) ,Peter Piggott (guitar) ,Cian Doherty (Doolin, Co. Clare drummer) were friends for a couple of years before The Burma formed together. They all grew up in musically orientated families, with some of their relatives making a living off of making music. Their name was taken from The Burma Steps in Cork, Ireland, the town that they all grew up in.
In the video, we are drawn into the black and white filtered frame with a dramatic medium close-up introducing the charming vocal range of lead singer Tony ‘O Donovan singing alone without the other band members present. Soon after the camera zooms out of the medium shot, and the other two members appear, all appears put together until the dark shadows hover around the members and their appearances becomes distorted.
The band shares more about the video,”We did the video for this one with Isla Media, our buddies from Cobh. We’ve done a couple of videos with them in the past and we’ve loved them, we have great craic doing them too which helps because it’s usually a really long day. We shot the video in Mill Studios in Dublin, it turned out to be practically the only studio in Ireland that would work for the idea we had. We were giving up hope until the lads eventually found this place and it turned out to be perfect.”
