Jeff Burke has been a solid but yet humble dark pop genius for well over a decade now.
Be it with the Marked Men, the Potential Johns, or now Radioactivity and
Lost Balloons, he has been penning poppy garage hits at a rate of which
most songwriters can only dream on.
These two new songs are the long-awaited follow-up to their 2015’ Silent
Kill album, but yet they were written way before any other
“I think Sleep was the first song I wrote after the big earthquake in
2011, when I was living in Japan. An aftershock woke me up in the middle
of the night” Jeff commented. “The song is is about dealing with the
fear of death. First verse is the fear of dying suddenly, too early in
life and the second verse is about the fear of dying slowly in old age”
Two mid-tempo songs, that he believes somehow didn’t fit the mood of
those two previous albums “The negative lyrics of Infected, in
particular. I guess it’s about a relationship that was too one-sided to
succeed… These two songs always felt like a set to me. I didn't want to
use them on albums because I thought they sounded better as a single”
And finally here they are!
You can call it Punk-Rock, you can call it Garage-Punk: this is Burke’s
songwriting to the top, combining grinding guitars, a lo-fi yet vibrant
sound, and a unique and distinctive bittersweet singing.
It’s no wonder this is one of the best and most loved bands going on right now.
