Fawn is the folk-Americana project of Liverpool based singer-songwriter Ilana Zsigmond, born in England but brought up mainly in in New Haven, Connecticut by parents who were themselves touring musicians. ‘Burden’ is a song about overcoming struggles – whether they be in relationships or other aspects of life. It’s being released on January 13th as a single and is the first follow up to her 2017 EP ‘Homebody‘.
Full of tender reflections ‘Burden‘ asks for assistance whilst admitting it is a lot to ask for. Time passes on, and things don’t always get better – “can you share the burden, just a little longer please” and the question arises is it fair to expect someone to keep standing by you? “I can see your heart is heavy but I really need you here with me.” Well, that really does depends on whom you’re asking.
