The Burma Share ‘Same Again’ / ‘Quicksand’

It's a double blast from the indie trio...

Rising indie rock trio The Burma have shared new double single 'Same Again' / 'Quicksand'.

The band hail from County Cork, three young musicians brought together by a desire to express something different.

Taking their cue from arena-filling indie rock – think aspects of The Killers, maybe – they couple this with a poignant sense of intimacy.

New EP 'Sugar Moonlight' is incoming, with the three-piece sharing a fresh double single.

'Same Again' has been a key part of their live show since the beginning, with The Burma allowing it to drift and evolve.

The Burma tell us: “We've been playing this song for a couple years and it's gone through loads of different variations to get to where it's at now. There's a shout out to Coolamber in the Chorus which is the estate Tony grew up in in Cobh. This track works well as a set opener.”

'Quicksand' became a fan favourite on its initial release in 2018, and this new version gives it a sweeping overhaul.

The band continue: “We had a version of this track out as a single in 2018 but the arrangement has changed since then so we decided to re-record it and include it on the EP. It seems to have become a fan favourite so we're looking forward to people hearing the new version.”
