DB set to release debut single ‘Burned’ Carlow singer/songwriter DB is set to release his debut single ‘Burned’ on June 17th.
Burned is a song about regret and wasted times, ‘Burned’ showcases how DB’s gritty vocal and lyrical ability can blend together. The announcement of DB’s debut single comes hot off the heels of him preparing to play the Carlow Live & Local festival on June 10. While he has worked with Sleeping Bears in the past on ‘Fire In My Soul’, ‘Burned’ marks DB’s first solo foray into the world of music.
Released via Ragged Company Recordings, ‘Burned’ is a track that rises from a deep synth opening to a tumultuous bassy conclusion filled with slick guitar riffs and vocal runs. Taking his inspiration from the likes of Michael Kiwanuka, Matt Maeson and more, DB has weaved some soul intonations into a singer-songwriter style track.

About the track :
Speaking about the track, DB said: “I’m really happy to present ‘Burned’ as my debut single because I think it encompasses a lot about who I am as an artist, from the neo-soul style leanings to the lyrics and vocal performance. “The song itself is just almost the opposite of that ‘it’s better to have loved and lost’ saying - 'Burned’ is about that feeling you get when you know it’s a bad idea to go down this road with someone, but it’s too late at that stage.”
