Bassist Devin Martinez says, “The single “Car Warranty” (as we’ve come to call it in short) stems from a period of mental instability. It comes from the part of the day where you’re beaten down and everything starts to lull, when you start to think a little more freely. You use your imagination, seeing things in otherwise plain backgrounds, hence the “stare straight at the wall and watch the ships sail towards the sun.” It’s trying to see light in what can almost feel like an unending darkness. And yet knowing that there is always hope. No matter what, never giving up on trying to find the “blue sky.”
Since its inception over breakfast burritos and nitro brew, the growth of Bury Mia has been rapid and steady. In just a few years the band has launched themselves from sweaty garage practices to packed and rowdy shows across the West Coast. As this 4-piece brotherhood of Punk has progressed through growing pains and extricated band members they’ve held a tight grip on their mission to assert their authenticity and musical lineage. As Bury Mia continues to gain recognition, their sound has become tighter and instantly recognizable.
Within a few years, Bury Mia has twice toured the West Coast and has made a significant impact in their local scene. In 2022 the band headlined a successful show at The Fox Theatre in Boulder and opened for major national acts including Boys Like Girls and State Champs at iconic Denver venues like The Ogden Theatre and The Gothic. They’ve also been featured in an array of regional publications including 303 Magazine, Westword, and LoHi Lifestyle Magazine.
“We believe that this music demands success. There’s something special here, a reinvention of sorts, a familiarity but with a unique freshness unlike anything out there right now. It’s not about claiming to be original. Originality is a myth. But this music is authentic.” says drummer Marcus Allen-Hille.
This group is passionate about their music which shows in every note. With no other goal besides issuing their hard-earned music into the world, they are going to get heard. Bury Mia has firmly planted a flag in the sound they’ve been dialing in from the beginning: It’s big, it’s loud, and it’s undeniably punk.
