How We Burn is an Alternative Rock quartet hailing from Boston, MA. The group formed in 2017 for what was essentially a reboot of a project started many years earlier. The band consists of Anthony McGowan (Lead Guitar), Kevin Morrissey (Bass), Matthew Berg (Piano/Keys) and Tommy Brennan (Vocals, Guitar). They originally began writing music together in the early 2000’s but life took them in other directions and the group members took a long hiatus from music.
Now they’re back at it with a vengeance. Through the course of 2020 the group released seven singles. Their songs are slices of life, deeply personal but universally relatable. They mix Rock, Pop and Hip-hop vibes to create emotional music to tell real-life stories. It is a powerful and heartfelt sound with Rock & Roll energy and keen Pop sensibilities
It’s the fire in your belly, it’s your heart on your sleeve, it’s good vibes reciprocated with good vibes, it’s feelings of life put towards music, relatable life in rhythm… learning to enjoy the storm.How We Burn
“Day to Day” is the band’s latest single, released to all major streaming services on December 3, 2020. The cinematic 6:06 track is an ode to breaking the mold of mundane life, centered around Berg’s sweeping piano arpeggios and constant melodic movement. The band matches that classic sound with ethereal guitars, hard hitting Rock drums and Brennan’s earnest ‘everyman’ lyrics. The resulting mood lands somewhere between The Boomtown Rats and 90’s philosophical rockers, Live. This is big emotional Rock and it will leave you feeling good about life when you’re done with it.
