Slow Fires make garage power jangle songs rooted in the tension between big problems and feelings of political proclivity that arise out of contemporary malaise and remoteness. You can hear a lot of the good 80s antipodean influences going on in there, but in a warm, rough around the edges kind of way. The sort of band you wouldn’t be embarrassed taking your mum or your boyfriend to see. Either is good right? See them play at the Yarra Hotel on Wednesday January 18th with Magnets and Jealous Husband.
