London’s Deborah Borg Brincat and Gianluca Pulvirenti form the eco-friendly, alternative indie-pop duo Berne, and they’re back with their latest offering, ‘Heat’; a climate emergency anthem wrapped in haunting vocals, angelic synths and eerie reverbs.
The pair, originally from Malta, have continuously used their music to draw attention to important global causes such as climate change, animal rights and the refugee crisis, neatly packaged in a creative and palatable musical fashion. Their combination of abstract lyrics and emotive imagery create an almost eerie, ethereal feel to ‘Heat’ that’s still oddly comforting to the ears.
‘Heat’ is due to be the second track on Berne’s upcoming EP entitled ‘Stay’, a project that’s been a year in the making and is very dear to the band’s heart.
When asked about the inspiration behind their EP, Berne shared that:
“Our debut EP is a reflection of what keeps us up at night. It comes at a time when humans need to work together towards common goals more than ever. We really believe that small changes will collectively make a big impact and that is the common thread in all the songs.– Berne.
