Single Review: SPIRITBOX – The Burner

SPIRITBOX - The Burner Artwork

SPIRITBOX are an five piece indie/alternative rock group from The Netherlands made up of Ruben Schimmel on Guitar/Backing, Nick van Eekelen on Guitar, Hans Meertens on Acoustic Guitar/Keys/Vocals, Jasper Janssens on Bass/Backings and Tomas Dekkers on Drums/Percussion. This isn’t the first time I’ve reviewed SPIRITBOX either and you can check that out here. Today I will be reviewing their single ‘The Burner’ which was released on the 24th December 2019. 

‘The Burner’ opens with a far-off, distorted noise that builds a sense of unease, this is compounded by the slow, measured tone of the vocals, they create a darker, heavier feel for this song which is really appealing. I also think the delivery has undertones of Johnny Cash in it, and that itself lends a lot to this track. I especially liked listening to this one, and just letting it wash over me, closing my eyes and listening to the complex, melody and harmonious vocals, that all add up to form a truly impressive entry. 

So that’s what I thought of SPIRITBOX and their single ‘The Burner’ and if you want to check that out for yourself then head on over to Spotify. Make sure and support the band as well, by following them on Facebook and Twitter.
