Burnt Ones served up the first taste of their upcoming album You’ll Never Walk Alone, in the form of “Fountain of Youth.” While steady drum beats, mind-bending distortion and dreamy vocals make up a familiar foundation for the song, a grimy hip-churning guitar riff is uplifted by pop melodies and gorgeous feedback that sounds a lot like barely there harmonies. The combination makes for a seriously shoulder shaking tune that simmers just below the lid, tugging our hairs with the promise of an explosion before fading out, leaving us with an itch that will only be scratched on the April 30th release of You’ll Never Walk Alone.
