Finnish Melodic Rock/Prog/AOR Band ‘Burntfield’ Releases ‘My Grief’ Single/Music Video


burntfield_mygrief_7b3The Finnish Melodic Rock band Burntfield have released a new single called ‘My Grief’ on 28 October 2016. Lyrically, as the title suggests, ‘My Grief’ deals with feelings of sadness, sorrow and longing for that someone unreachable. The music is emotionally charged with wistful harmonies and harrowing vocals, driven by acoustic guitar, piano and deepened with a string quintet. Burntfield’s signature sound is taken to a whole new level, combining the atmospheric, progressive, melodic and catchy elements in one. ‘

My Grief’ was recorded and mixed at Sonic Pump Studios, Helsinki with Eero Kaukomies during summer 2016, and mastered afterwards by Svante Forsbäck at Chartmakers, Espoo. A familiar face in Burntfield as a session man, Arttu Vauhkonen (Arion), makes a special guest appearance on the piano, and string quintet ANSoS adds the natural touch of a full string ensemble. The music video for ‘My Grief’ was realized with Finfinitum Video Production and can be watched below. The atmospheric video reflects the story’s emotions with the addition of actress Noora Koivumies and circus/fire artist Jukka Juntti, who bring along a great deal of theatricality to the visual entity. ‘My Grief’ is available digitally worldwide for watching, streaming and download.
