The Burning Hell are one of Canada’s most acclaimed indie/folk acts and have toured and recorded with artists like Julie Doiron, Great Lake Swimmers, Jeffrey Lewis, Dan Mangan and Stanley Brinks (Herman Düne). They were recently featured by BBC6’s Marc Riley and have played the 2014 edition of the Mo’fo’ Festival in Paris with Son Lux, Jessica Pratt and Lucky Dragons.

“His half-spoken baritone will appeal to fans of punk vet Jonathan Richman, the music to those of pioneering alt-rockers They Might Be Giants. If that sounds a little too college-rock clever, rest assured that Kom’s music falls on the right side of the indie rails, knowing but always careful to let the listener in on the joke” (2014, Q Magazine, 4 stars)

“Kom doesn’t try to create moments that are bigger than life. No, he focuses on making life’s most basic elements combine in wonderful, magical reactions. Through Kom’s eyes, we see life is for the living, not the dreamers. The real rewards come from finding the hidden beauty in what we have, who we are and and who we meet, not in what we desire.” (Herohill)
