Burning Bones is a one man post-rock outfit based in Melbourne but originating in Leeds, England. The sound of Burning Bones has been characterized as “cinematic rock” by some critics and “ambient rock” by others.The track is an amalgamation of influences, spanning from dream pop, orchestral electronic, and indie rock. KAIA’s vocals are smooth, alluring, and distinctly her own, adding a unique vibe to the brilliant instrumentation. Check out the singularly gorgeous ‘Funeral Pyre’ from Burning Bones.
The intro riff to ‘Funeral Pyre’ was something I’d been playing around with for a few weeks but something about it just didn’t feel right; I tried everything but it always seemed to be missing something. Eventually, I managed to make something out of it, but even then it felt like it was missing something. I tried to do the vocals myself, but that didn’t work, so I decided to try a female vocalist. My first thought was to ask an old work colleague from the music store i used to work at but she was moving to LA so she couldn’t do it. Eventually I found KAIA through Curtis who produced the track and she came in and nailed it in just three takes and that was that.”
