The journey of the new BURNS and Friends album, Kites of Jaipur begins in the Himalayas of Nepal, meanders down to the desert of Rajastan, India collides with the colours and scents of Italy before arriving in the serenity of Sweden.
Musicians from Ireland, Sweden and USA have combined to extract the maximum musical melody from stories that range from chance meetings in train stations in north west India to hidden valleys muse in middle-Italy. Lost words replace lost loves, new friends replace new trends.
Producers on the new album include Adam Kviman (Save Tonight – Eagle Eye Cherry), Nils Johansson (SR, SVT, Ballerina Audio) Keith Hearne and Kieran o Loughlin.
The sense of journey is compounded with contrasting symphonies from the intimate 10.000 Miles with haunting guitar and lazy harmonica to the cacophony of Sandcastles with its embracing orchestral crescendo.
Styles too are reminiscent of the roads travelled upon with the album starting in the 1970s punk/pop inspired Move On and culminating with a Poguesque rowdiness of Whiskey for Breakfast.
The journey is image-rich and bountiful with reflective and honest accounting of dreams lived and dreams loved, dreams won and dreams lost….
………to dream is to live, to live is to love and love is life.
Kites of Jaipur is available from 18 November 2013 online on Spotify and iTunes and Cds go on sale from 9th
December with the launch concert in Stampen, Stockholm.
