She Said Fire releases new single, ‘Funhouse’

The powerhouse rock band from Brooklyn known as She Said Fire has released their newest single, titled, “Funhouse.” The single is an excellent example of what the East Coast has come to love about She Said Fire, being full of the same energy and aggressive creativity that they have been associated with since their inception. It showcases the unrestrained talents of all four band members, giving old fans and new listeners alike a window on what is sure to be remembered as their formative release, the upcoming She Said Fire EP.

She Said Fire is predominately a contemporary rock band with some pop and post-emo elements. Their style exemplifies a full, lush sound that is exceedingly dynamic, and surprisingly deep in timbre for a four-piece band with a dedicated vocalist and just one guitar. The She Said Fire tone marries intelligent, complex chord structures and active, precise bass lines to the explosive and intuitive performances of their drummer and singer. Vocalist Joshua Hawksley sings with the verve and passion of a young Axl Rose, blended with the rasping drawl of Tom Waits and the delivery of Dave Grohl. The character of the band is altogether unpretentious and fun-loving, yet ingenious with an abundance of artistic integrity.

She Said Fire is the reborn incarnation of NYC-based rock band, The August Infinity, which was comprised of the aforementioned Hawksley, Peter Strzelecki and Chris Moss, and whose “To Whom It May Concern” EP was received with such enthusiasm and anticipation. The addition of Christina Vitucci on drums catalyzed the band and led to the development of the sound encapsulated in “Funhouse,” and the band rechristened themselves as She Said Fire. SSF completed the production of their forthcoming EP through a Kickstarter campaign that successfully ended in early February, and with an excess funding of 15% to boot. Hawksley and Strzelecki can be seen performing a soulful, bluesy acoustic version of “Funhouse” online.

“Funhouse” by She Said Fire is available on iTunes and elsewhere worldwide online beginning March 26, 2013.
