Toronto Music Scene August 28, 2012
FIRExFIRE are fresh off the heals of their debut August release, a seven-track album that captures the frantic energy, powerful vocals and hallowed synth-slicked British essence typically reserved for beachy wave pop. Signals is the work of a band that has defined its sound with confidence and apparent ease, perhaps because it consists of ex-members of The Framework, Ketch Harbour Wolves and Crash Parallel. It’s almost unfair how brilliant they are. Not only that, but they recruited Dan Weston (Shad, Classified) to mix Signals, and Harris Newman (Arcade Fire, Wintersleep) to master it. They were our favourite new discovery during NXNE in no small part due to their polished performance and kinetic sound.
