Growing up in Austin, Texas, in the late 1990s, Angela Burns drew influences from some of the most powerful female voices of the decade and the pop-punk, grunge and rock scenes of the time. Though now she’s only 21, her reinterpretation of women like Amanda Palmer is a refreshing throwback to a time that (I think?) can be now considered nostalgic. (Yes, that makes me feel as old as it makes you feel.) Nonetheless, it’s not like Burns is pulling skeletons out of the closet; her music is fresh, young, hip, and as radio ready today as it would have been 20 years ago.

Check out the exclusive Popdose premiere of Angela Burns’ video for “It’s Sad” below, and be sure to keep up with her on Facebook.
