Announcing “Bronze,” the poignant new electronica EP from fire_sign.
Using true British musical craftsmanship, the pair create a darkly shimmering world in which smudged beats ricochet ominously against soaring, heart-stirring vocals.
Title track Bronze explores a wish to be made from something else; a material instilled with every quality you lack.
Emboldened by your new non-skin, you feel self-assured and resilient enough to move among people without disappearing into an otherness.
But confronted with a real crowd, the illusion of strength quickly shatters, and you find yourself once again reaching for a trusted escape.
Journey with fire_sign as they flee ‘the people sea’, trip over past hurts, wander through a deserted factory haunted by powerlessness, and find their way out of an impossible romantic entanglement while walking London’s iconic streets.
Let yourself be swept into the comforting embrace of strings built around Sarah’s solo cello as you dry your eyes on a rich sonic tapestry daubed with synths of every colour.
And whatever sad thoughts Bronze brings to your mind, remember – “don’t let them dim your light”.
8-track EP “Bronze” was mastered in Berlin by Calyx and will be digitally released by 4am City on September 12, 2020.
