The Burning Sun
The Burning Sun are alchemists of sound. With stamina that harnesses the energy of their namesake, this power quartet rotates instruments throughout their discography and live performances to create a panorama of unpredictable melodies, intricate rhythm changes and atmospheric tones.
Locals to Burlington, VT (unceded Abenaki territory), Katy Hellman, Steven LeBel, Bo Malcolm and Addie Herbert weave together their eclectic musical influences which include folk, psych rock, prog rock, punk and ancestral sounds. The group works in close collaboration writing and arranging all their music. What emerges reflects the deep wells from which they draw, deriving a signature sound from soaring vocals and evocative lyrics.
The Burning Sun lays bare the grandness (and absurdity) of being alive; the explosive highs and chaotic lows. Bursting with personality and conviction, their music urges us to never lose sight of life’s possibilities.
