What they say

“Fires, is a song about the break up of a relationship. About two people who have been together for a long time, growing apart. One side is a dominant person, and controlling. The other side wants to be loved. Both using actions to show their feelings, instead of speaking to each other. Thoughts get locked away. The only way for them both to move forward is for it all to end.” Ash
Vacant Ceremony Verdict
Fires starts strong and holds your attention from beginning to end. The pulsing bass throughout shows the influence from Editors. The synth/guitar melodies work well with the song and highlight the lyrical content. Ash has a great voice and effectively conveys the message of the song. It feels like the soundtrack when all of your friends come together to support you through hard times.
This is a really strong track and clearly demonstrate a band on the rise and set for big things.
