Melbourne act Collo explores returning to a lover who has let you down once on alt-rock offering “Burnt”, which brims with atmospheric beats, lush synths and powerful vocals from Italian female vocalist Dee Wolf.
Leaning into his versatility as a songwriter and producer, Collo crafts a listening experience that’s vulnerable yet enjoyable as he weaves a hard-hitting tale about a girl who returns to a relationship where she’s been hurt once, only for it to happen again – for her to be “burnt” a second time.
Despite the heartbreak surface, the track is centred around hope and empowerment as it brings out the determination to fight back against people who hurt you by moving forward in life.
With melodic hooks juxtaposed against a raw yet confident message, the expansive rock track with attention-grabbing vocals and intricately arranged sonic backdrop, has us reaching for the replay button.
A musical journey that began at the age of eight after being given an acoustic guitar at Christmas, Collo has brought his classical guitar training together with contemporary influences to build an artistry that evolves with the time yet remains timeless in modern rock.
