Justus Proffit is here with a brand new single, fresh off the heels of a collaborative EP with Jay Som. Proffit’s “Burning The Ground” brings to mind acts like Field Medic or Hovvdy while still embodying hints of haunting Elliott Smith flavor. With plenty of ghostly keyboard flourishes, angular guitar plucks, and a strong acoustic backbone, this fits perfectly into the moody modern bedroom-pop canon.
“Burning The Ground” is the first single from Justus’ upcoming LP, Speedstar, due out August 20th on Bar/None records. Until then, enjoy the lo-fi chic of the music video below.
