Firestations are Mike Cranny, Laura Copsey, Martin Thompson, Giles Littleford and Tom Hargreaves. They write lyrical alt-pop songs filtered through joyous surges of collective noisemaking and bursts of electronic sound from synths and guitars. They released their acclaimed debut album ‘Never Closer‘ at the end of 2014 and their new album ‘The Year Dot’ will be out on Lost Map Records on 6th April 2018, and is available to pre-order now. Singles ‘Build a Building’ and ‘Receiver’ are out now.
“With its clinking electronics and driving rhythms, there’s a touch of retro-futurism about the sound, like a child of the 1980’s picturing what pop music would sound like in 2018”. For The Rabbits Blog (on ‘Receiver’)
