Tomorrow, Brandon Wolfe Scott will release Burden On Your Shoulders EP via Dine Alone Records. To celebrate the release he is sharing the new video for “Summers On Fire”, a song about climate change and the negative impact humans have on the planet. “Having spent a few years living in the Okanagan region of British Columbia, rising temperatures and wildfires have become an annual summer tragedy along with the coast of California, and of course the absolute catastrophe currently taking place in Australia,” says Brandon.
“The narrative is not me preaching, but more about stepping outside my own echo chamber of ignorance. Looking to the future generation I think it’s important to inspire change and hope in the face of sadness and ecological grief.”
Best known as the guitarist and co-songwriter in the JUNO Award nominated Indie rock group Yukon Blonde, Burden On Your Shoulders came together in the winter months of 2019, when the band found themselves with time off between tours, giving Scott the opportunity to turn his tiny living room space into a minimal recording set up.
“Being fully immersed in the recording process became a comforting experience and a constant learning curve. Working at my own pace, deliberately tracking with limitations, helped me shape a cohesive sound that feels like the most genuine thing I’ve done.”
Scott has settled into a natural songwriting style – paying homage to the golden era of the 70’s drawing inspiration from Al Stewart, Todd Rundgren and Beatle favourite; George Harrison – whilst still maintaining a modern approach through his introspective lyrics laced with lush harmonies.
