Yukon Blonde’s Brandon Wolfe Scott has released a video for the title track from his forthcoming EP, Burden On Your Shoulders, which drops on January 17th, 2020 via Dine Alone.
“‘Burden On Your Shoulders’ was the first song I wrote and recorded at the beginning of 2019,” Wolfe explains in a statement. “It’s an earnest, autobiographical song about self-preservation, something I’m trying to get better at but constantly struggle with. I was hesitant to show my bandmate James Bull as it’s quite personal, but I liked the song a lot and needed an outside ear, I knew he would give me an honest opinion. He immediately called with enthusiasm and told me to send over the track files so he could start mixing it. This started the process for my EP.”
The dreamy new tune feels remniscent of the Beatles’ “Strawberry Fields Forever,” with cyclical, warping instrumental lines and processed, silky vocals. The accompanying clip follows Scott as he plays guitar, walks through a forest, and goes on a road trip.
