FIREWORKS – ” Higher Lonely Power “

Posted: January 1, 2023 in MUSIC

Fireworks have just released their long-awaited “Higher Lonely Power”, their first album in nine years. It’s out via the band’s own label, Funeral Plant Collective.

“We appreciate the opportunity to create together and continued to do so during our hiatus, regardless of name and outlet,” guitarist Chris Mojan said. “Higher Lonely Power” gave us the chance to be selfish and self expressive, without the pressure or expectation that comes from playing in a band. We just needed to work through some personal things first, good and bad.”

“Higher Lonely Power” doesn’t include their 2019 comeback single “Demitasse,” but as that single hinted, this album is a massive leap forward from everything that Fireworks put out during their initial run. It’s an ever-changing journey that ranges from electronics-infused art rock to metallic post-hardcore to sweeping, string-laden climaxes to atmospheric dream pop to breakbeats to the driving energy of Fireworks’ earlier punky emo-pop records to so many other things that aren’t easily described with a few genres and adjectives. And even with all this new ground covered, it still sounds like Fireworks. I know it hasn’t even been out for a day, but I already feel confident calling this Fireworks’ best album yet.
