Sweet flowing alt-pop from London five-piece Firestations with new single 'Build A Building', their first release on the Lost Map Records label.
The Walthamstow, north London-based group deliver a sound far removed from their urban environment. "It's about seeking release from feeling like a cog in a machine," is the description of 'Build A Building' offered by Firestations' Mike Cranny.
The track - which is the first single from their forthcoming second album, 'The Year Dot', due out early next year - is an ambient flow of smoothly textured vocals and lush guitar strums, accompanied by a patter of synths. One for lazy afternoon listening.
Firestations play the Lost Map Strange Invitation Xmas Party with other label artists on December 10 at the Strongroom Bar in London.
