0171 – Burnout

Acclaimed London-based duo 0171 return today with an eccentric yet thought-provoking mix of electronica, indie and hyperpop through new single ‘Burnout’.

“‘Burnout’ is a collage of the way people think when they are depressed. We liked the idea of singing about propofol, a general anaesthetic, and the song reflects that soft numbness. There’s a kind of release in admitting you’re burning out, the song has a strangely uplifting feeling to us. As we wrote darker lyrics than we had done previously, the songs got faster and more upbeat, like we were finding the fun again in making music.”

Co-released alongside ‘The Basics Are Coming Back’ which is available now. Upcoming EP ‘Welcome Back To My Channel’ is out soon.
