Burhou ‘Please Delete’
More London Duos seem to be slowly emerging at the moment, from HONNE to OH WONDER, and all seem to be bringing something new to the music market – the latest BURHOU are no exception with their new release ‘Please Delete’.
They are a relatively new project and this track is the only piece to pull from their resume, but as it stands, it’s all they need. Burhou – named after an island with no permanent residents and once depicted as ‘the most desolate and lonely of all the islands’, it seems fitting that their sound is so broodingly sensual.
Opening with 2 short verses of seductive vocals and simple guitar plucks, to be followed with what could be described as a slow moody African drumming, this casually falls into added intricacies of the instrumental. It’s an all encompassing sound, perfect for the desolation of the Burhou Island.
We aren’t sure when the next release will be out, all we know is that they will be releasing their first EP, Lola, later in the year, but for now, the pair have treated us with a free download of ‘Please Delete’ to keep us going.
