Comprador is a promising easy-listening/progressive/alternative rock band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about 2 months ago with their magical song; Burn Through, which was released as a single in 2020. The band is officially making releases since 2018. They have started their careers with a single called; “Waves Hiss Forward” in 2018, and continued with three more single releases; “When It’s Over” in 2018, “Bike Rack On” in 2019, and “Burn Through” in 2020. This band has immediately caught my full attention with the beautiful nostalgic vibes in their music, and I am sure I won’t be the only one who thinks this way after publishing this article. Now, please give it a listen while reading the rest of the article.
Burn Through is a very successful piece of work with an easy listening structure, addictive vibes, and melodies all along the way. Most of the metalheads (especially my generation) grew up listening to the legendary Pink Floyd who opened a brand new window in their imagination and led them to discover other rock, progressive, and eventually heavier (metal) music. They are not only a special band to me but also a teacher who educated millions of people with their innovative thinking back in time. Comprador is one of those bands who has got the same kinda magical touch in their music. I know, this is a sensitive point and some might think this is too much Pink Floyd influence. As you might also remember from some of my previous articles, I am good with it as long as the song has a good balance. And in my opinion, Burn Through is too beautiful to resist. I listen to music just because I love listening to music. Simple as that. And this song has already made it to my personal playlist.
The song was put together very professionally. The listener never loses the freshness, the excitement of the music from the beginning until the end. Like I said earlier, it will take you back to the ’70s with its overall vibes, yet it still sounds super fresh. For me, there’s no room for criticism for a work like this. Believe me, not everybody can write music in a very beautiful manner such as this one. Obviously, these American gentlemen are into those golden times as well. They are making the actual difference here not only with those vibes in their music, but also with their instrumentation, decisions, and composing skills. And they are very special to me with the magical combination of their instrumentation and the voice of the vocalist. Simply amazing.
