Turin-based alt-rock duo PEAKS! return this spring with the anthemic & powerful alt-rock anthem ‘Fired Up’, an emphatic piece of melodic rock that explores the fragility of the human state.
“Fired Up is about our mental health and how fragile we all are. In this specific case, the song portrays depression like a long-time friend that rears its ugly head from time to time, whilst we try to build a wall to avoid any kind of eye contact, we still pretend to act as ‘normal’’
The second single from the much hyped duo, ‘Fired Up’ showcases the duo’s ability to combine emotive themes and uplifting chord progressions, with a raw and powerful alt-rock production style. The track juxtaposes an epic, anthemic chorus with soft verses, representing the ebbs and flows of mental illness for those who experience it.
The duo’s hard work and unquestionable songwriting talent has led to critical acclaim worldwide. On their previous single ‘Blackout’, they received widespread support from streaming platforms including New Music Friday in France, and cover photos on Top of The Rock and Rock Italia. They also clocked support on Amazon Music from their Fresh Rock and New Rock playlists. Across the airwaves, Jack Saunders has been regularly supporting as part of his Radio 1 ‘Future Artists’ section.
