Singled Out: She Must Burn's Possessed

She Must Burn recently released a video for their song "Possessed" from their self-titled debut EP and to celebrate we asked frontman Joseph Sinclair to tell us about the inspiration for the song. Here is the story:

I'm going to chat a little bit about our latest video release "Possessed" that we have just dropped with Artery recordings. so... Most would look at the title of this song and the image of our band thinking the obvious. Possession, goblins and ghouls... Far from it in honesty, metaphoric maybe. Even so from day one of our writing process for this song we agreed as A whole this would be a powerful expression of past sadness, memories and despair. This being our second musical creation.

We are close friends, meaning we are able to be very open with one another, helping us to understand our next movements towards this piece. Taking everyone's problems and personal feelings in to account. Working metaphorically with lyrics along with our expression of shape and structure, it was as though a weight had been lifted from each of our shoulders, without ruining the imagination of any listeners. Simply for the purpose of imagination, The aim is that no matter what the relation with it is that you have some at all. Whatever it may be.

We felt it a must to have both styles if vocals within this song, it's in no way aggressive. Just A notification on paper of lessons that we know we have learnt. A stage in life that we've overcome individually and together.

More of this to come as we are currently in the process or writing our album release set for late this year/early next. Improving and growing. Watch this space.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the band and the EP right here!
