Memory Castles Fire Up On Their New Single, ‘Burning Down’
Adelaide pop rockers, Memory Castles have returned with their first single of 2021, Burning Down. It’s just under 3 mins of pure theatrical glory, that speaks to everyone’s inner 2000’s scene kid.
Burning Down is delivered in a manner that is unique to Memory Castles style. It can be seen as a classic emo, pop-punk track but it takes things a little further than that. It goes in a couple of different directions throughout but maintains some big vibes through massive guitar riffs, pounding drums and an unmissable vocal delivery from frontman, Jesse Cumes. Lyrically it’s quite a touching story of how Jesse explores intimate struggles with Borderline Personality Disorder.
“‘Burning Down’ is a song about instability, dysfunction and emotional exhaustion, expressing an inability to formulate a coherent and stable opinion on someone because of the overwhelming emotional responses you have towards them, splitting back and forth between intense infatuation and burning resentment.” – Jess Cumes, Memory Castles frontman.
