Electronic body music duo Youth Code and trap-metal producer King Yosef have dropped the new song “Burner”—which is exactly what it says on the tin.
The abrasive industrial-metal track is the lead single of collaborative album A Skeleton Key in the Doors of Depression. It’s received a grainy visual treatment that combines mundane scenes with other footage that hints at something bleaker and more unnerving.
“The video for ‘Burner’ puts into perspective the duality of our everyday personas dissected into light and shadow,” Youth Code member Sara Taylor told Revolver.
“The constant state of monotony and struggle can lead us to a breaking point within ourselves, and to a path where we might not realize that the actual problem needing to be addressed is us as humans instead of what surrounds us. Is it nature or nurture? What if we are simply being challenged by something we can’t actually see? This song’s lyrics and visuals are a testament of challenge, and we hope you enjoy them.”
A Skeleton Key in the Doors of Depression is out March 9. Watch the video for “Burner” below:
