“The Burma is rebellious and bold.”
The Spill Magazine
[On ‘Hard to Say'] “The song is bursting with an electric, Foster the People meets Arctic Monkeys energy.”
Variance Magazine
“Taking their cue from arena-filling indie rock, they couple this with a poignant sense of intimacy.”
CLASH Magazine
[‘Same Again'] “A dancey, glowing indie rock number”
The Rolling Stone India
“Jamming out in front of roving lyrics, the band infuses intensity into the fun, upbeat instrumentals.”
Hot Press
“‘Sleepers' opens on swirling, psychedelic colors flowing into a deliciously kaleidoscopic melody riding a
potent rhythm.”

Bold indie rock trio The Burma will be sharing their long-awaited album, Sucker For Stars, on the 14th of
October via The Burma Music. With the release of their LP, listeners are invited to discover the
yet-to-be-heard title track, which will be featured alongside the band's chart-topping single ‘Don't Believe
Your Dreams', a record that rose to No.1 in the Irish iTunes single charts and landed at No.6 in The
Homegrown Top 20 in the Official Charts. Also taken from their album is the single ‘Sleepers', which
climbed its way to No.4 on Irish iTunes and No.12 on The Homegrown Top 20. It is unsurprising that
noteworthy tastemaker publications have praised the band, namely The Spill Magazine, Variance
Magazine, RTÉ XM, CLASH Magazine, Rolling Stone India, Hot Press and Medium.com/ Pop Off, to
mention a few, and received extensive national airplay, collecting over 140k streams across platforms.
Sucker For Stars is a rocker's fantasy. Like a new band poster, the album offers fans a vivid image of what
The Burma stands for as a band, printed in high gloss. A few of the featured tracks thrash lawlessly, inciting
miniature musical riots while other ballad-type records live together in gently strummed harmony. With only
guitars, drums, and vocals, The Burma has written an album that is rich and dynamic.
Proudly local, the band takes its name from The Burma Steps in Cobh, Co. Cork, Ireland. Its members are
Tony O'Donovan (on vocals) and Peter Piggott (on guitar) who are both from Cobh as well as Cian
Doherty (on drums) who is from Doolin Co. Clare. Drawing inspiration from The Strokes, Tame Impala
and Daft Punk, the band has created a signature sound comparable to Glass Animals, MGMT and Foster
the People.
The Burma muses on the making of their LP: “Sucker For Stars is a body of work which we officially started
two and a half years ago - although it‘s been much longer in the making. The album represents two different
sounds for us - the first, made up of 6 older songs which we've held onto over the years- and then 5 brand
new songs showing where our writing style is at in its current form. It's a milestone moment for us to have
our debut album out in the world, it's been a long time coming.”

4. Sleepers
