Fireworks at The Girls Are

A self-confessed “loud fuzzy pop band”, The Fireworks have unveiled their smashing new video to ‘Tightrope’, a song taken from their debut album Switch Me On.

Based between London and Brighton, the indie foursome are a super group of sorts, and super they most certainly are. The band is made up of members Emma Hall (Pocketbooks), Matthew Rimell (Big Pink Cake), visual artist Isabel Albiol, and Shaun Charman (The Wedding Present/The Popguns).

With scenes of not-so-domestic bliss, the video for ‘Tightrope’ explores the mundane repetition and routine of a dead end romance, and one woman’s desire to break out of relationship jail. And break out, she does!

Watch the awesome video below and be sure to catch The Fireworks at one of a host of UK and European tour and festival dates this year.


Fireworks at Morphettes

Today’s Song Of The Day is Runaround by The Fireworks.

Runaround is a classic indie pop song that will instantly put you back in the 90’s listening to bands like Sleeper. London based The Fireworks released their debut album Switch Me On earlier this year and it is full of great catchy songs like Runaround. It’s definitely one of 2015’s  must have albums.

Vocal duties in The Fireworks are shared between Emma Hall and Matthew Rimell which adds a nice contrast to the record. Emma is the lead singer on Runaround though. This is a band that look set to have a breakout year in 2015.



Luxembourg Signal at Aural Report

Okay…the warm weather has been holding off for way too long. It is time for some summer music and The Luxembourg Signal are here to fulfill that need. The Luxembourg Signal are an indie pop group made up of former members of seminal UK twee bands Aberdeen and Trembling Blue Stars. By the sound of their latest single “Distant Drive”, that twee-ness has stuck around from their former musical incarnations. Perfect jangle indie pop for warm summer days, if they ever come.
