Burn The Negative

Chrome dance with a hidden message

These Carlisle post-punk programmers stand out a mile and confess to regularly being abused in their hometown during every pint for being ‘long haired wankers’, though they balance this with a knowledge that their location has inevitably helped their sound. Burn The Negative’s sound is brash and wide open. It harks back to the unashamed and halcyon days of ’80s dance before genres splintered and tastes became too niche and specialised.
