Based in Newcastle, Firesites are an indie pop three-piece whose gentle new track oceanpotion caught my ear.
By Graeme Smith
Constructed from calming, strummed guitar and a KORG-based melody oceanpotion creates such a chilled atmosphere it’s impossible not unwind a little while listening. Perhaps its most standout feature though is its dreamy vocals, delivering image-laden lyrics that will have you grabbing your bucket and spade and heading for the coast.
Firesites will be familiar to those in the Newcastle DIY scene and the release of their debut album last year has seen their fanbase growing. For me, they feel like an undiscovered gem. I can’t wait to hear more from them.
You can see the homemade video for oceanpotion below.
