Where Fires Are – I’ve Got The Time

As their new EP, One Four Six One waits in the wings to be released, British alternative rock outfit Where Fires Are have unveiled its lead track I’ve Got The Time. The song is a rousing slice of energy and craft wrapped in an imaginative enterprise which ensures it stands out from the crowd.

where-fires-are-ep-artwork _RingMasterReviewThe seeds of Where Fires Are go back to its five members meeting at Leeds College of Music in 2010. The next couple of years or so saw its individuals playing in various bands or exploring solo projects before Nick Banks, James Clegg, Matt Exton, Robbie Gillespie, and Ash Reynolds finally found themselves free to link up for their own musical adventure. That was late 2013 and since then Where Fires Are has established a potent reputation for sound and live presence. One Four Six One is their next nudge on national attention which, if it lives up to the potential of I’ve Got The Time, is success easy to see coming around the near corner.

The song’s first breath brings a forceful tide of imposing riffs and thumping rhythms as electronics sizzle behind them. Swiftly after its force dissipates as harmony backed vocals and warmly suggestive keys emerge to wrap ears. It is a striking contrast which just works as both extremes provide a matching potency and craft, subsequently merging as the track twists and turns through its emotion driven angst and tempestuousness.

The ever changing landscape of the song is seamless with each new turn adding something new for the imagination to ponder and ears to devour. It is rousing stuff which as just commands attention and a quickly growing appetite for song and sound.

Expect to hear a lot more of Where Fires Are!
