YSSY RELEASES NEW SINGLE “BURN MY HOUSE DOWN”

Rising Toronto-based alt-pop duo YSSY close out the year with a retro-tinged synthpop anthem about changing your life. “Burn My House Down”, which drops worldwide via their Spruce Sound imprint on Friday, 06 December, finds singer-songwriter/producer Elliot Caroll and multi-instrumentalist/producer Simeon Abbott supported by a larger-than-life drum beat provided by Rich Knox of Danko Jones.

“The song comes from the point of view of someone who’s stuck – in their mind, their relationships, or their own negative patterns – and that key moment where they realize something’s got to give,” says Elliot. “When you’re struggling in a situation like that, change can feel impossible, but the first step is to strike the match. I write from experience because I feel like I’ve set my life on fire multiple times. And I think many of us have been there.”

With lyrical piano riffs that nod to band favourite Bruce Hornsby, Elliot sings, “Truth is I don’t want to live here anymore / I don’t like the walls I built / I don’t want to live here / I don’t want to clean up the floor / Crying over what I spilt / I don’t want to live here / So I’m gonna burn my house down.” The track appears on YSSY’s upcoming debut EP, due out February 2020.
