For a band who are barely two years old, Durham/Sunderland four-piece Fires of Freya have come a pretty long way since their debut releases, the live EPs Crash & Burn and Loaded released last year, and it’s with new single Take A Bow that their recipe of adrenaline-charged rock and raw vocals really shines.

Take A Bow has ‘radio friendly rock’ written all over it; the track throbs with a slow-burning intensity thanks to bluesy riffs and Cheryl Reynolds’ brilliantly smoky vocals, which take on an occasional throaty rumble, while Shaun Evans does a pretty neat line in guitar solos. The increasingly fast and furious tempo towards the end amply showcases the band’s intuitive playing, and their first studio recording demonstrates a pleasingly slick rock track with just enough grit to make you hit ‘repeat’.

The band will give Take A Bow an official launch at Beyond Vinyl on Newcastle’s Westgate Road on Saturday 21st September with support from heavy rockers The John Doe Experience, catchy alt. band Edge of Obsidian and Chris Simmons. The relatively new venue is branching out into regular events over the coming months, so keep an eye on their Facebook page for more events.
