London four piece Burning Condors' 2nd single, the double A-side ‘Knockout’ and ‘Riot in the Streets’ is released on 13th May 2013 through Snakehand Records The tracks will be available for download from Amazon, iTunes and other major download sites.
‘Riot in the Streets’ was written in a rehearsal room in Tottenham Hale in 2010, right at the heart of where the infamous London riots ignited in the summer of 2011. The track is a live favourite and a prophetic commentary capturing the social unrest and violence that
was bubbling in London's underbelly and shortly to surface. It has received airplay in the US.
‘Knockout’ is a dark blues infused track which explores the theme of infidelity. The song and its accompanying photo montage video, place the audience in the position of a person who learns that their partner is involved in an illicit affair, directly from their partner's lover. The video is stylistically influenced by the twisted film noir of David Lynch, the femme fatale characters of cinema’s golden age, and the fine art fashion of Guy Bourdin. It stars burlesque artist Constance Peach and Burning Condors’ guitarist Matthew Edun. Emma Vo is the video's photographer and editor.
Fresh on the Net described Burning Condors debut single ‘Honey Trap’ as being “...dirty in a good way...” whilst God is in the TV hailed “...a howling haunted victim of love no more”. Joyzine was equally impressed, describing Burning Condors sound as using “...a modern art punk filter to come up with something fresh and new. Imagine Nick Cave sipping whiskey with John Spencer in a Hoxton dive bar.”
‘Knockout’ / ‘Riot in the Streets’ will be launched with a live performance at The Lock Tavern (Camden) on 25th April 2013. Burning Condors debut album ‘Round Our Way’ will be released in September 2013.
