“Young Mopes,” a record full of witchy, Stevie Nicks-esque gestures, Go-Go’s-inspired harmonies and chiming guitars. The “madman” of the opening track “make-believes that everything’s just fine.”…the album’s 10 songs thread the needle between darkness and light, evoking the hazy twilight world between waking and dreaming.
“Young Mopes”embraces this existential crisis and addresses them through beautiful, glittering new-wave.

“Her demeanour at once relaxed and commanding, Burns effortlessly glided through her set, laughing with her band in between songs, bantering with the crowd and consistently delivering rich, velvety vocals. She swayed with her eyes shut as she strummed her low-slung bass, looking out steadily at the room on “Who’s the Madman,” a gorgeous and dreamily infectious cut from her new record. 

“Young Mopes is her sharpest collection of songs, and one that finds her expanding on the scope of her ’80s-inspired goth pop to include such disparate influences as country music and the sitar.
