Die Or Survive is the brand new single by Leeds rockers Where Fires Are. This unsigned quintet of Nick Banks, James Clegg, Matt Exton, Robbie Gillespie and Ash Reynolds. I first came across them in March having been hooked on the single I’ve Got The Time and then the One Four Six One EP. It comes as no surprise that they have been championed by BBC Introducing (BBC West Yorkshire’s Alan Raw, BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson, Amazing Radio’s Aaron Phillips).
Anyways Die Or Survive was an entrancing piece of perfection which can quite easily have you moshing to the beat. Plenty of electrifying Indie Rock vibes oozed from this tantalising tune. Whilst plenty of energy resonates from this track the use of the keys does create something rather mellowing.
Recently the band have unleashed the music video for this tasty track and it’s an absolute masterpiece. Directed, produced, shot and edited by Tommings and Sean Pearce, the video for Die Or Survive is a perfect accompaniment to the rugged dynamics and emotion. Also the visuals gave it that cinematic old fashioned feel.
Here is what the band had to say “We are all so proud of this video, we love the special effects used and fell in love with the concept incorporating Victorian-era Leeds that the production company Tommings came up with”.
