Burning In The Rain” is the second single off of Go Set Go’s upcoming release. The first single he released you can check out here and it is worlds away from “Can't Last Forever.”
This song revolves around guitar, piano and vocals and is a soft and warm ballad. It’s an intimate performance and had a similar emotional residue to a song like “Dust in the Wind.” On top of being warm and soft it’s also haunting.
I really loved the way the piano and guitar worked together on this song. The guitar picking is hypnotic while the piano playing feels like it coming from the romantic classic era. I haven’t even mentioned the lyrics yet which are poetic and visually stimulating but also lean towards melancholy. Mike TV sings “the fire in my head / is raging as it spreads / and it’s burning me down.”
This is a very heartfelt performance by Mike TV. He sounds really good even as he tries to hit certain notes that he can just barely get to without cracking. The shifts in energy are subtle in the song from the way the piano is played to how a certain note is sung.
Suffice it to say the two singles released so far sound like worlds apart. The first was a fun, relatively chipper alternative rock and then we get a beautiful ballad like “Burning In The Rain.” I for one am interested to hear what other surprises might be around the corner.
