Keep Burning explores what it’s like to deal with a breakup. Even though the song is sad, there’s also a ray of hope at the end of it. The lyrics encourage you to make room for a new beginning and not get too caught up in the past. Once you move on, you’ll realize that it’s important to see what makes you content. Totemo notes that this process involves some obstacles, but will be worth it.
In order to visually complete this experience, the song has been accompanied by a music video. The film was remotely shot between Tel-Aviv and Seoul, with South Korean Young-Wook Paik as director and Hyun-Seo Woo as starring actress. Totemo met Paik, a prominent and highly acclaimed commercial and short films director, during a music festival in Seoul where she performed. The two formed a friendship based on their mutual love of music, and during Covid, the idea to collaborate took form.
On a scale of 1 to 10, this song ranks extremely high. Since the production incorporates elements from different sub-genres, it comes across as original. Based on what we’ve heard so far, we’re eager to find out what the rest of Totemo’s upcoming album has to offer.
