It’s been almost a year since we last
mentioned Burning Hearts from Finland, and that was when they released
the song ‘Work of Art’ back in June. That song gave us a hint that the
sound of the band was moving into more of a synthesized direction, a
move that seems to be confirmed with the band’s latest release ‘Bodies
as Battlefields’, which has a clear synth pop beat running throughout.
This makes it all the more danceable. The first lines of the
song: “Our bodies were not meant to operate as battlefields. Year after
year they have to deal with all the aching of wounded hearts.” really
sums up the theme of the track, but reading the lyrics like that without
hearing the song feels weird. How do those words even fit in there?
Well, they do. Vocalist Jessika Neuman has a very personal touch in her
way of singing. She sounds airy and calm, and there’s a certain
narrative quality in the way she accentuates the lyrics. Listening to
her vocals is fascinating, as she continues to develop a style
introduced in her previous band Le Futur Pompiste some seven years ago.
