Brighter Fires is the self-titled debut album from the Virginia based duo. The 11 tracks are powerful and driving, with compelling vocals and a heavy blend of guitar and synths. Brighter Fires have a unique sound, at times envoking song forms reminiscent of Roxy Music and Human League, but much heavier. The music just grabs you by the balls and says sit up straight and listen. Originality, excellent musicianship, strong writing and sparkling production are in short supply in indie music and Brighter Fires deliver all in droves on this record.
