Burnt Ones bring vintage Bolan beauty and girl-group drama to the Bay Area

SF's Burnt Ones' debut album pays homage to T. Rex's Marc Bolan in style and lyrical content.

As much as Burnt Ones rely on the past, it's easy to forget that this band is pretty much new and likely aims to be part of the pantheon of Bay Area lo-fi, psych, and garage rockers. The group's contemporaries include Hunx and His Punx, who updates the tried and true androgyny and gender-bending nature of glam by updating it to serve his own homoerotic needs. Burnt Ones' "Soft City" is a well-produced number that displays a kinship with Hunx's teased vocals as it confronts topics such as saved souls and the cold outdoors.
