Hard rock trio Fire By Night have released their new single "Obsessions," out on all digital platforms NOW. On "Obsessions," Fire By Night approaches the topic of mental health with fervor. Pulling raw inspiration from personal experiences with anxiety and depression, "Obsessions" digs down deep into strong guitar riffs, but still upholds a melodic alternative base. This version of Fire By Night is rather fresh - their current lineup was only recently finalized a year ago. But their newness is not obvious - their look, sound, and branding are seasoned, and "Obsessions" demonstrates that with clear passion. About the track, Fire By Night states:
Obsessions was written about anxiety and depression, and how the typical conversation goes with a friend or family member that does not understand it for themselves. As it says at the end of the first verse: “My darling, if I must remind you that future may only fix the mess” draw from the narrative when someone tells you that “it’s gets better”. The lyrics of the chorus, “just watch it burn down my life” dwell on the emotions that arise from the realization that mental illness is a lifelong battle, and I didn’t know how to handle it.
Fire By Night is a hard rock band based out of Phoenix, Arizona. The project was initially created by long time friends Chris “Skippy” Cleland (guitar and vocals) and Kailee Vander Maten (lead vocals) in the summer of 2018. The duo’s powerful storytelling is accentuated by mournful, tearing vocals and heavy-hitting guitar riffs. They were recently joined by the young powerhouse drummer, Faith Powell, and together, they seek to make an unstoppable wave in the music industry.
Their style is influenced by the likes of Crazy Eighty Eight, Lower than Atlantis, and Biffy Clyro, which can especially be heard in the three singles "The Fall," "Enemy," and "Parasite." The group plans to release three more singles by mid-2022, promising that each one will show their versatility as they pursue the advancement of their eclectic sound.
