I can see the Autumn Fires from here! Not an actual fire, mind you, no a powerful flame in the form of North London-based pop-punk band Autumn Fires, who released their latest single “Seventeen” a few weeks ago following their previously released single “Escape Route.”
With everyone and their mother jumping back onto the pop-punk bandwagon, is there even room for this female-fronted group to fit into the equation? That’s what we’re here to find out. Does the band’s new single, “Seventeen,” warrant attention? Or, do these pop-punk hopefuls falter before they can soar? Let’s find out.
To answer the question from a few sentences ago…HECK YES, there’s more than enough room for a band like Autumn Fires to make huge waves in the international pop-punk scene, and if you’re a listener that doesn’t think so, then you must not know what GOOD pop-punk sounds like, because this is it.
“Seventeen” has all the makings of an instant classic pop-punk tune that is more than guaranteed to get stuck in listeners’ heads. Instrumentally, Autumn Fires’ latest single is fast, heart-pounding, and will clearly keep your blood pressure up while you sweat it out at the gym. In perfect harmony, frontwoman Charlotte Haimes fucking kills it. This pineapple pizza-loving vocalist hits ranges like no other while dancing her melodies around the band’s dancehall-infused instrumentals.
These pop-punk hopefuls will be selling out shows in no time, and with tracks like this one and their previous single “Escape Route,” the sky is only a small roadblock on their way to the headline scene.
“Seventeen” will certainly be a tough contender later this year when it’s put through the wringer of our Song of the Year Extravaganza. A little fun fact, it’s thanks to an Instagram ad that I even had the pleasure of listening to the band’s latest hit in the making. Autumn Fires is one of those once-in-a-lifetime types of pop-punk heavy hitters, and they’re barely getting started.
I can’t wait to hear what’s coming just along the horizon as the band gets ready to release their debut EP later this year. If you’d like to learn more about this fantastic pop-punk group, I highly encourage you to head on over to the band’s official website and connect with them via Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
