Wollongong’s pop rock band Firelucy debuted their awesome new EP ‘Puppet’ Friday 11th at Dicey Rileys.
Launching their first ever EP, Firelucy really showed what they were made of. With their smooth upbeat sound, they performed songs from ‘Puppet’ along with a Britney Spears cover and Lily Allen cover, giving both the songs a Firelucy feel.
“Our EP is just a collection of songs that have all been co-written by the band and are an expression of the parts that make up the whole. It sounds corny, but there is a little bit of each of us in each song. We are fortunate that we work really well together in writing music and so we wanted to record this time in our lives and express the direction that our sound is heading towards.” Lead singer Jo Parnell explains.
Keyboard and Saxophone player, Sean Crombie also mentioned his favourite song on ‘Puppet’ saying,
“My personal favourite song on ‘Puppet’ is Feeling the Same Way. The ‘loungy jazz’ feel is cool, the bass is funky, the vocals are sexy and the song has a dissonant edginess that I really enjoy, not to mention the exciting dance break in the middle!”
“We feel that while there is variety in our music, we have developed a Firelucy ‘sound’ and so the EP is just a reflection of that.” Jo added.
Firelucy certainly have a unique sound, with influences such as Fleetwood Mac, Britney Spears and Tori Amos.
“Our influences are varied and unique, fueling a chemistry that’s already attracting attention in the music industry! We want to learn from the best, and we hope one day we become an equal inspiration at home and abroad to others.” Bass player Joel Dobbins revealed.
Talking about playing Live, drummer Claire Wright also added,
“We are all seasoned performers so gigs are really a part of our blood! We love playing gigs for the same reasons I think a lot of people do – we love to entertain, we love to see people having a good time, and we love playing good music with great friends!”
So what’s next in store for Firelucy in the future? Joel gave some insight into their upcoming gigs and also hinted to the works of a second EP.
“We have a lot in store already, and we think even we’re in for some surprises too! Plans are already underway for touring as far north as Newcastle and far south as Canberra; continue writing songs (we already have enough for a second E.P.)… This month we’re set to play at the Alibi Bar in Wollongong on Thursday the 17th, and then we’re off to Sydney to play at the Valve Bar in Tempe on February 2nd. We also have gigs lined up at the Jamberoo pub in April.”
All round their set was entertaining, all of them giving heart and soul into their performance.
