She Said Fire releases debut EP record ‘Boom!’

She Said Fire, a contemporary rock band from Brooklyn, NYC, has released their debut EP record album, “Boom!” The record is an aggressive, catchy collection of modern rock songs with some pop and post-emo elements that is chock-full of talent, power and energy. Sporting five of their newest, original tracks and including the recently released and highly acclaimed single, “Funhouse,” “Boom!” represents the most definitive collection of She Said Fire music to date. Funded partially through online pre-release album sales and fan donations, their Kickstarter campaign finished successfully in February with a 15-percent surplus.

She Said Fire was introduced to the international music underground by “Funhouse,” the aforementioned single from their new EP. This single colored their style as contemporary rock with some elements of classic metal bands like Led Zeppelin, but the heart of She Said Fire is much heavier on modern rock tones. The sound is not unlike a more metal-based and somewhat jazzier version of My Chemical Romance, though without My Chemical’s characteristic melodrama.

She Said Fire’s “Boom!” EP starts with an unforgiving, explosive barrage from drummer Christina Vitucci that hits the listener like the crash of a tidal wave, with guitarists Peter Strzelecki and Chris Moss roaring atop the sound with a piercing vibrancy that is relentless and palpable. Infinitely capable vocalist Joshua Hawksley sings in the pop rock vein of the early 2000s, but with a chaotic and creative style all his own. His timbre recalls a young Axl Rose, crossed with the drawl of Tom Waits and the delivery of Dave Grohl.

The booming success of She Said Fire’s Kickstarter campaign bespeaks an almost heartwarming rapport with their East Coast fan base. Live videos of SSF shows abound on the Internet, each of which clearly demonstrates the band’s charisma and openness with their audiences. Hawksley, in particularly punk-rock fashion, directly addresses members of the audience between and during songs, making She Said Fire performances practically interactive. Their unpretentious demeanor is unmistakable in the musical character of “Boom!” For a fine example of this, Hawksley and Strzelecki can still be seen performing a soulful, inviting acoustic version of “Funhouse” online.

She Said Fire is the reborn incarnation of NYC-based rock band, The August Infinity, which was comprised of Hawksley, Strzelecki and Moss, and whose “To Whom It May Concern” EP was received with much enthusiasm and anticipation. The addition of Christina Vitucci on drums catalyzed the band and led to the development of the sound encapsulated on “Boom!,” for which the band has permanently rechristened themselves.

The album “Boom!” by She Said Fire is available on iTunes and elsewhere worldwide online beginning April 9, 2013.

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.

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.
