The story of

BURN.INC [&Tilly x MWAFS]

single / 2022-08-31
world-music EDM, IDM / flute, synths, drums, vocals

BURN.INC is one unique blend of a European indie artist (have you guessed? it's &Tilly ^_^) with an emerging South African musician and flutist, MWAFS. Combining world music and alternative EDM influences from MWAFS with Tilly's darker side and love for old Placebo tracks, BURN.INC underlines our damage to the world and sends a powerful message about trying to learn from our mistakes.

"BURN.INC is one unique blend of a European indie artist with an emerging South African musician and flutist, MWAFS"

We used an opposite kind of approach for the music video and put water in fire (or the other way around? it's hard to say, really) - in pretty words, the modern-day damage #burning to the world vs. an old black and white movie from 1916; the fires burning in us vs. the world underwater. Did you know that #1916's 20 000 leagues under the sea, cuts from which we used in BURN.INC, was the first film ever to use underwater footage? Fascinated as we were with it, we loved the pixelated old-school quality of the the incredible moodiness of Jules Verne's motion picture adaptation. And so this public domain movie starred in BURN-INC alongside our little lighter.

& lyrics

Can't you see it's burning
 The words burning upon us
 Can't you see it's burning
 The world's burning upon us
 
 The world's burning upon us
 The world's burning up on Us
 The world's burning up on Us
 The world's burning
 
 Burning, burning, burning, burning
 Burning, burning, burning, burning
 Burning, burning, burning, burning
 Burning, burning, burning, burning
 Burning, burning, burning, burning
 Burning, burning, burning, burning
 Burning, burning, burning, burning
 Burning, burning, burning, burning
 Burning, burning, burning
 
 Burning
 Burning down our tears
 Burning, burning, burning out to feel
 Burning
 Burning down our tears
 Burning this
 Burn another piece
 
 Burning
 Burning down our tears
 Burning, burning, burning out to feel
 
 The world
 The world is burning
 Can't you see it's burning
 
 Can't you see I'm burning up
 Can't you see I'm burning up
 Can't you see I'm burning up
 Can't you see I'm burning up
 
 Can't you see I'm learning
 By all of this being burned
 Can't you see I'm learning
 Learning to ask
 Learning, too
