Josie Proto is an emerging talent from Brighton. Her witty storytelling has gained considerable popularity – with her song ‘BTEC Lily Allen’ going viral on TikTok, gaining half a million views. Her new single ‘Burner’ is from her upcoming debut EP Pub Songs Vol.1.
‘Burner’ is the type of song you can listen to while skipping down the road. The soaring chorus is so infectious because it shows off Proto’s strong vocals. The playful plinky pianos work well with the summery guitars because they add an extra layer to the song.
The lyrics explore the false misinformation from social media, delivered in an endearing tongue in cheek way. You can hear Proto’s exasperation as she sings “Fuck it, I’m gonna live in a cave.”
‘Burner’ shows why Josie Proto is becoming a hit. Her music oozes confidence, honesty, and playfulness, so it’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
