Vera : Burntfield happens to be a melodic rock band hailing from Helsinki, formed late 2012 by singer/guitarist Juho Myllylä. Earlier they released the EP ‘Organic Waves’ (2013), the digital single ‘Let It Die Away’ (2014) and the EP ‘Cold Heat’ (2015). Now we have the digital single with additional music video clip of the song ‘My Grief’. In April 2016 they toured abroad for the first time. It is a song that instantly reminds me of Anathema: melancholic and sensitive. Vocals of Juho are really very akin of those of Vinny Cavanagh. The song leans on the classical piano skills of guest musician Arttu Vauhkonen (Arion), vocals, acoustic guitar and a string quartet. Towards the end the whole band joins in and we hear a sure-fire, sensitive guitar solo. They recorded at the famous Sonic Pump Studios and the result is a beautiful yet polished product that will surely appeal to fans of Anathema. For the video they hired actress Noora Koivumies and circus artist Jukka Juntti to add a theatrical zest to the entire thing. A professional band that obviously aims for chart success.
