Burn The Mountain – Runaway (Official Video)


    Burn The Mountain release ‘Runaway’; a thunderous escape from the mad times that we live in.

    Distorted fuzz-out basslines, thunderous drums, sneering guitars and soaring vocals is an apt description of the freshly minted debut single Runaway by Burn The Mountain. Self-produced by the band the debut single is a hard blues-rock escape from the mad times we live in. With live shows like a white-knuckled trip down the rapids, Burn The Mountain is about real music and real connection. No backtracks, no bull. Not ever.

    Members, there’s a thing about a trio…the freedom and space to let the interplay between the music go wherever it leads. Some things only come with experience. Each of the players in Burn The Mountain have toured both locally and internationally and bring the fire to anything from small stages to festivals. Cesare Cassarino (Bass) is a low-end powerhouse and holds a diverse musical background ranging from experimental jazz to hardcore industrial. Mthobisi Keith Marisheni (Drums) is an educator, session player and the heartbeat. Marisheni has held down the groove for a bucket list of South Africa’s finest. Thomas Selmer-Olsen (Vocals, Guitar) lives for performing. With powerful voice and guitar, he’s also the primary songwriter.

    “Runaway has been a lot of firsts for us. First self-produced track, first music video, first proper release. It came out of the frustration of the second wave. And what started as a 7-minute-long jam went through tempo shifts, key changes, ruthless trimming of fat and a decision to incorporate some of our more diverse influences. There’s synth bass, EDM in the bridge, industrial snare and exploring more of my vocal range. It signals a step forward for Burn The Mountain and we are beyond excited as to where it is leading us…” Comments vocalist and guitarist Thomas Selmer-Olsen
