Loving someone is sometimes hard but letting go of that love, even when you know it’s not good for you, is harder. The new ballad from Sydney, Australia-based singer, and songwriter Clare Easdown speaks exactly about this feeling, and it wins you over because of how emotionally raw it sounds. It’s a beautiful song, that you can miss out on!

The fire metaphor is very appropriate because fire is unpredictable and intimidating. It can burn ever so brightly – and destroy everything in its way. It can be extinguished, but it will leave a trail of ash and smoke. That is exactly what Clare Easdown is singing about on this one. “Burned Into My Past” is an incredibly moving and emotional piece of music, you can hear the ache in Clare’s deep vocals as she sings about letting go and moving on from someone. ‘You’re burned into my past, this was never going to last‘, she sings in an overwhelming chorus.
It’s a love song about loss and longing, for when you know it’s over and it’s better for both parts that it’s that way, but it’s still deep and intense because such was the nature of those feelings. It’s about when someone leaves a mark on you forever, like a scar that will heal but never fade completely. This is where Clare Easdown is at: she’s reflecting on that scar, remembering a time that was and isn’t anymore, taking in that pain and using it to move forward. It’s gorgeous and vulnerable, and it’s a unique and delicate song.
With two albums worth of self-released singles last year alone, Clare’s back catalog is an impressive one. She and her main collaborator, Simon Pipe, met online through Instagram and started working together even though she’s in Australia and he lives in Barbados. The distance didn’t stop the duo from crafting perfect dream pop-inspired singles, and “Burned Into My Past” is their crowning jewel.
