Buried Under Sky is a melodic metal/rock project that formed in the middle of the 2020 pandemic from members of the 90s Connecticut metallic hardcore scene. With an avowed love for dueling melodies and hard rock rhythms, Buried Under Sky wears its 90s influences on its sleeve with zero ambition to be the fastest, hardest, heaviest, or anything but four middle-aged guys with day jobs making the metal they want to hear.

BROKENHEARTSCLUB – Party Started
While it’s the first time you’re reading about BHC, you might have already heard Harvey Whyte & ONUR in their respective solo projects. Nicknamed the “rap Cobain”, Harvey’s raw punch and frankness have previously put him firmly at the top of the collaborators’ list, from Footsie and KeepVibesNear to Greentea Peng and soon Fatima. Acclaimed by his peers Labrinth, kwassa or EDIS, ONUR intrigues just as much, infusing British pop with Turkish beats and carefully curated samples. His debut EP A Millennial Rhapsody cumulated 1 million streams across platforms, garnering the attention of multiple record labels in the UK. Together as BHC, they’ll be releasing a handful of tracks this year.

Produced by Tommy English and Mike Crossey, ‘Ready To Go’ details the demise of a broken relationship, as Noah succumbs to the realization it’s over. Noah shares: “I call this song “July’s sister song” due to their similarity in lyrics, but in actuality, they’re really more like cousins. They’re about different people, entirely different storylines, and each brings up different memories and emotions. In a way, I see a lot of growth in myself from who I was then and who I am now, but at the same time it’s still impossible for me to walk away from people I love, even when it’s harmful to myself.” Last week, Noah joined Zane Lowe on his Apple Music show, New Music Daily to discuss the track.
