Bvrden – “Indigo”


A fierce rocker taking inspiration from early ’00s alt-rock and punk pursuits, “Indigo” is a strong showing from London-based band Bvrden. They describe the effort as “about fighting for one’s own purpose and finding the strength to build the desired path, while not being led off course by judgement and fears of others.”

A rousing blast of guitars intensify quickly, guiding into an impassioned vocal emotion — expressing how ideal pathways can be blocked by rubble, prompting a need for creativity and endurance. The encouraging “it’s worth a try,” chorus resonates in its spirited, invigrating qualities. The band’s versatility is especially prominent in the ensuing verses, injecting a more haunting vocal disposition amidst clanging acoustic instrumentation.

“Indigo” is a powerful rock success that impresses in both its anthemic immediacy and more understated ruminations, appearing briefly yet effectively. Bvrden’s fifth single is a surefire achievement with riveting lyrical encouragement and an ardent overall production.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2023’ Spotify playlist.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
