about

Hot on the heels of the release of their 2nd single ‘Knockout’, a track described by Fortitude Magazine as “150% old-school hot…slinky to the point of slithering out of the speakers”, London art punk four piece Burning Condors' return with a new single ‘Dirty Girl Blues’, released on 15th July 2013 through Snakehand Records.

Lauded by critics for injecting some old-school, sensual charm and sexiness into the music industry, Burning Condors tread this path further with ‘Dirty Girl Blues’ a grinding, down and dirty tale of the power play games in a relationship featuring distorted vocals and buzz saw resonator slide guitar.

Alongside their devotion to their craft as musicians, Burning Condors collaborate with emerging photographers, illustrators and animators from the UK’s exciting art scene to create visuals which add a new dimension to their music. The cover art for ‘Dirty Girl Blues’ was produced by Danny O’Connor (aka DOC) who has exhibited alongside some of the world’s leading urban artists including Banksy and Adam Neate. DOC often leaves paintings on the street for people to discover and take home.

Burning Condors’ debut album ‘Round Our Way’ is due to be released in September 2013. ‘Round Our Way’ was recorded at Stainless Sound Studios, Nashville and features a guest performance from Dave Roe, double bassist for Johnny Cash’s band Tennessee Three.

Burning Condors will play two UK shows in July, Milo (Leeds) on 25th and Buffalo Bar (London) on the 27th.

about

Burning Condors UK

Fresh on the Net described Burning Condors' debut single ‘Honey Trap’ as “...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.” ... more

Track Name: Dirty Girl Blues
'Dirty Girl Blues'

Teen rites of passage was built for the masses
Appearances to deceive
Caught yourself falling that don’t come with a warning
A cute trip for you to think that you’ll be playing me
Well doll I been in this game too long
I know I got got what you need
It’s what you want

And I don’t mean to be cruel mean to be unkind
But I aint some young fool sure as hell aint blind
The time has come to cut the shit
Before we lose our minds

It’s always hard to wear battle scars
My past might cut you the same
But control girl no need to feel insecure
I’ll teach you so good you’ll be thinking your names lady luck
Learnt those teasing tricks getting kicks out dicing at the players club

Though I know this big world’s left you lost confused
Wanna know the big scoop? We’re all scared to lose
But don’t wanna play pretend like you got the dirty girl blues

You see that playtime girl with the boys
Wishing you could be so cool
Thinking it’s control when to stay or go
Don’t you know she aint the running the show

That girl never gets what she wants
That girl never gets what she needs
But the penny only starts to drop
When she’s getting to her feet from her knees

That girl never gets what she wants
That girl never gets what she needs
But the penny only starts it’s little drop
When she’s getting to her feet from her knees
Track Name: What Your Mama Said
'What Your Mama Said'

You play the girls around
Get you back they’ll smack you to the ground

Coz you build them up
When you let them down
Boy they’re gonna take you down

Girl’s hearing wedding bells
Should have known better than to kiss and tell

You built her up, up, up, up, up
Now you let her down
Boy she’s gonna take you down

Mama told you that girl is wrong
She gone crazy boy you better run
All the talking aint getting through
You can’t just cut her loose

Should’ve listened to what your mama said
Should’ve listened to what your mama said

Thought you could be just friends
Little bunny boiler rises again

Coz you built her up, up, up, up, up
Now you let her down
Boy she gonna take you down

She’s calling up all your ex girlfriends
Boy be scared they’re out for revenge
Oh you know they won’t let it lay
Till they’re dancing over your grave

You should’ve listened to what your mama said
Should’ve listened to what your mama said

You know what goes around
Comes back to haunt you in your bed
You should have listened, listened good
Listened to what your mama said

Should’ve listened to what your mama said
Should’ve listened to what your mama said
Should’ve listened to what your mama said
Should’ve listened to what your mama said
