Spirit of the Wildfire do not sound how you expect them to sound, I can guarantee you that much. I’m not sure exactly what I was thinking of when I heard their name, but it wasn’t a bluesy funk punk band from Nova Scotia, Canada.
If you secretly spin Artic Monkeys records in your alone time after you get home from a punk show, then buddy this is a record for you! Each song is as full of hooks as the industrial fishing stronghold that I can only assume their hometown of Halifax is.
You’ll still be able to blast some of their raucous punk inspired songs at house parties and retain your street cred, don’t worry. But you’ll be just as into their upbeat funky alt-rock little jams, won’t you? You saucy devil.
Listen to their latest release Bittersweet Nothings here.
