Stevie Cliff’s debut single “Burn Baby Burn” will be available on iTunes and Spotify Monday February 8th. The track was produced and mixed by Ciaran O’Shea (Frank & the Walters, Toy Soldier) and mastered by Fergal Davis.
No stranger to the Irish Music circuit Stevie has spent the last few years honing his craft as a singer songwriter opening for acts such as Mick Flannery, Paddy Casey & Declan O’Rourke. In the midst of this musical apprenticeship was a year spent living in New York. The change in urban environment caused a shift in the focus of his sound. Slowly acoustic instruments were traded in for drum machines and synthesisers. This allowed influences such as LCD Soundsystem & Chromeo come to the fore to be mashed with his love of intelligent lyrics.
The end result is the debut single “Burn Baby Burn”. The track combines slick 80’s synths with staccato guitars and solid pop hooks to devastating effect. Lyrically the song explores the postmodern state of romance that today’s millennials must navigate on a daily basis.
