With the recent single and penultimate track 'Circus Boy’ already turning heads, London’s Flashfires are capitalising on the building buzz by releasing their second single 'Champagne on Mars’.
In showcasing a more melodic side to the band, the track affords lead singer Alex Gonzato the chance to let his effortless vocals soar, all while showcasing the diversity which lies at the very core of what Flashfires stand for. Touching on a certain elegance and class throughout, its slick instrumentals and emotive lyrics take listeners on a sonic journey from beginning to end.
Highlighting a dark story about a struggling performer who longs to live amongst the stars, but will only stand in the shadow of the spotlight, never finding their true purpose in life. Still retaining the raw bombast the band are known for despite the tracks ballad-like nature, its haunting melodies and delicately placed guitars glide effortlessly throughout the song, elevating us to an anthemic climax. From this, it’s clear Flashfires are striving towards the top, never resting on their laurels, by delivering something out of the ordinary and surprising us with this epic track.
“I think we all had an idea that this song was going to be special from the word go.” explains lead singer Alex Gonzato “We pushed the boundaries to craft what I believe is Flashfires at their best”
