Vancouver’s Louise Burns is excited to announce her new record Young Mopes, which is slated to be released on February 3rd, 2017 via Light Organ Records. Burns created the album with co-producers Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Black Mountain) and Damien Taylor (Bjork, The Killers, Austra). You can watch the video for the lead single “Storms”.
Young Mopes also represents a few other milestones for Burns: this is the first album that she has recorded with her band, guitarist Darcy Hancock and drummer Ryan Peters, both formerly of Ladyhawk.
Who’s The Madman
Louise Burns is already a 20-year vet of the music industry and she’s just 30 years old. She witnessed the heady last gasp of the majors in the late-’90s (Burns co-founded pop band Lillix at 11 and signed to Madonna’s Maverick Records at 15), and was front and centre for Canada’s indie renaissance. Burns is a collaborator (Gold & Youth), solo musician, and multi-instrumentalist. She’s toured extensively, playing throughout Japan, China, Europe, and North America, whose interests cannot be contained by hours in a day. Burns is also a freelance contributor and host on CBC’s Radio 3, and a journalist whose writing appears on CBC Music, the Talkhouse and Westender.
