BurnHard – “Oh Sheila” (feat. Brendan Vintedge)
BurnHard has some very impressive “demos” on Soundcloud. The songs are already quite polished, so I’d expect just a few minor mixing tweaks for the final product. The project’s new LP, An Electronic Education, is available for streaming, and shows a smooth and sensual incorporation of R&B with glistening electronica, like a more upbeat venture from The Weeknd with production characteristics borrowed from electro-pop greats like Pet Shop Boys and Erasure. There’s a pulsating, modern club feel with a fervent electronic palate, as well. In BurnHard’s words, the project incorporates “contemporary musical influences with the more modern sounds of Chillstep/Chillout, Trap Music, Electro House, and Dubstep.” In other words, it’s a smorgasbord of various electronic styles, executed without a hitch here. The Weeknd comparisons are especially comparable vocally on “365”, another highlight from the LP, below. BurnHard’s LP involves the collaboration of Brendan Vintedge; dedicated American Idol fans may remember him from the top 30 in season six. His vocals add a strong punch to the efforts on An Electronic Education, a very worthwhile showing from BurnHard and Vintedge.
