  Wilma Vritra have landed with Burd, a trans-atlantic collaboration between London based artist Wilma Archer (Domino / Weird World) and LA based rapper Pyramid Vritra (Stone's Throw / Odd Future). Their debut LP serves as an ode to these chaotic times, navigating seamlessly through genre and self preservation.

Burd represents those who feel unable to partake in societies unrest; the prejudice, violence and homogenised culture of style over substance. Although it affects them directly, it's relentless and overwhelmingly difficult to emotionally invest. Instead it offers disconnect. Willma's production carves out enough space for Vritra to vent and reflect on what he’s witnessing. In his own words “I feel like the album is a window. Or a screen. You stay inside and watch the world happen. The truth is that sometimes the world isn't pretty, and it isn't happy, sometimes it is, but most times it isn't. Each track is a different take on that reality on display to me.”

Wilma Archer is a multi-instrumentalist currently signed to Domino and has previously collaborated with Jessie Ware, Jeremiah Jae, Amber Mark and Selah Sue. Pyramid Vritra is a founding member of Odd Future and has previously released on Stone's Throw and Odd Future Records. During his formative years in Atlanta, he founded the hip hop collective NRK (Nobody Really Knows) and subsequently linked up with Matt Martians of Odd Future. They formed The Jet Age of Tomorrow, with cuts from this project being sampled in Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Section.80’

Burd took flight as a remote collaboration; Wilma writing in Newcastle and London, Vritra writing in LA. Archer then flew out to LA and finished the bulk of the record at Vritra’s place in Long Beach as well as a few days in Daddy Kev’s infamous ‘Cosmic Zoo’ studio. The finishing touches were laid down in London and rounded off with artwork by Swedish artist Joakim Ojanen.
