‘Burning’ by Yeah Yeah Yeahs—Single Rating: 4/5 ★★★★☆
‘Burning’, the new song from Yeah Yeah Yeahs, brings the band’s infectious rock sound to the forefront. The New York band that got its start in 2000 has given us a preview of what to expect from their upcoming album, ‘Cool It Down’. It will be out on September 30. Based on what we have heard thus far, the record is going to be a real treat!
‘Burning’ ushers in a new era for the band by fusing a fresh charisma with a signature sound that they have been providing us for many decades. This sound was initially introduced to us by the band on their debut album. It is a moving release with a nail-biting piano arrangement that leads us to a vocal from Karen Lee Orzolek that is arguable up there with her best performance in recent memory. This release is a testament to Orzolek’s ability as a vocalist.
This song exudes an infectious air of self-assurance. Also, although the band had a break for a while a few years ago, they are back together in full force now and are determined to continue their mission of blowing us away. There is a slow buildup to the climax, and it takes some time to get there. But, the overture is captivating and keeps us fixated. In addition, a guitar riff propels the song ahead until it eventually collides with a booming drum cadence that fills the area with a quality reminiscent of a stadium performance.
