Ontario based electro project DAVIDS premiere “Crown of Burrs,” the song propels forward with a combination of industrial grooves and rock riffs, while the vocals arrive from a new wave nightmare. ‘Crown of Burrs’ is a song that is perpetually building and it races to an elevated height.
The band had this to say about their latest track:
The inspiration for “Crown of Burrs” came after a long night of indigestion, caused by a Reuben sandwich of questionable freshness that I’d purchased at a roadside kiosk just outside of Birtle, Manitoba in August 1998. At one point I was vomiting with such ferocity out of the back of the camper that I heard an audible POP! in my spine. I lost consciousness. When I finally came to the bass line for the song was already in my mind, and it looped there for the remainder of the trip. Once I’d gotten home and dropped off the last of the scout troop I barricaded myself in the makeshift studio I’d cobbled together in a dumpster behind the local Giant Tiger. 19 years later I emerged, finished track in hand, with a pet rat that I’d taught to speak. His name is Brad and we are quite happy. Enjoy the song. Thank you.
