Having honed their craft for a decade, Birmingham’s Future Fires is the self-styled sound of the apocalypse – urgent, addictive and darkly brooding, they combine the best of modern British indie-rock to soundtrack a planet at the very brink of existence. Their forthcoming single, Halfway Down, is a thrilling combination of furious guitars, a stinging percussive attack and driving vocals, the perfect introduction to the twisted world of Future Fires.
Comprising Adam (vocals); Matt (bass); Jak (second guitar) and Alex (drums), Future Fires are based in Birmingham, England, brought together by their love for loud and lively Rock and Roll music, big nights out and a strong desire to share this with their fans.
Following the success of their previous single, Infinite Life, the band have now teamed up with top producer Gavin Monaghan from Magic Garden Studios, previously known for his work with Editors, The Twang and Gold Blade, reinforcing their gritty, burning sound which provides the backdrop for their true-to-life tales of relationships in the modern age. Named after a vision of a post-apocalyptic Earth, Future Fires bring together the elements of Joy Division, Editors and Oasis into an irresistibly addictive sonic whirlpool.
Halfway Down is the second single to be taken from Future Fire’s debut EP, expected at Christmas 2020. If Future Fires is the music you hear while the Earth is burning, bring it on!
“The track is an honest look at modern relationships and is about getting involved with somebody you shouldn’t and hitting that moment where you have to either have a word with yourself or just take the plunge – hence the ‘truth or dare’ lyric/ scenario in the chorus. It also touches on men’s mental health issues and patterns of self-destructive behaviour: presented in the song’s title ‘Halfway Down’ which is a reference to a really dark and heavy episode of Bojack Horseman.”
