M.U.S.E.News & OpinionFind Your MUSE(ic): Video of the Week – “Burn featuring Craig Owens” by Enda Vera

Patrick McElravyFebruary 21, 2020

On this week’s Find Your Muse(ic) we bring you Nazareth, Pennsylvania’s Enda Vera and their new single “Burn”. Caught somewhere between Emo and Post Hardcore bravado and brooding Post Grunge antics, “Burn” is a slow burner (no pun intended) that swells and exudes the emotions of a human being at the end of their rope. With beautiful acoustic arrangements topped with amazingly emotional and convincing vocal performances, it makes me wonder why a band of Enda Vera’s talent has yet to truly break out. Another notable mention about “Burn” is the appearance of Craig Owens of Chiodos and D.R.U.G.S. fame. While not the kind of song I would have expected his provocative tenor to be involved with, his feature helps build the cascading aura that is “Burn”. It makes a rather nice and engaging contrast to the Post Grunge flavored vocals that dominate the track. While I am not familiar with Enda Vera’s catalogue, “Burn” has hooked its claws in me and I plan to find out more about this extremely talented act. Be sure to keep up to snuff with everything Enda Vera and follow them on all their social media and streaming platforms, I promise you are in for a treat.
