Oscar Thorburn is an up-and-coming singer and songwriter from Sydney, Australia. On his new release 'Burning Out,' he comes to terms with his instinct for self-preservation in a world where we put everyone else's needs first.

Burning Out was written during a very difficult time in his life, and served as personal directive to let the emotions of feeling overworked and uninspired pass through him like sunlight through glass. The mellow indie-folk vibe here pairs well with a lyrical theme of redemption, as Thorburn makes peace with a difficult past and a bright future. With an easy groove and a positive outlook from this guitar-driven pop song, we prepare for the day when we can wake up with a proud smile.

I wake up after noon
Sun through the curtains burnin holes through my eyes
and let's be real it's no surprise
That I found myself lying face down on the floor
