Firedance

Review by Gary Hill

This EP is probably best described as "dance music." That paints pictures of music that's often more concerned with tempo and rhythm than it is with melody. That would be selling this music short. There is such a wide range of sound and emotion here. The vocals are very strong, too. I'd say that the opener is the best piece here, but nothing is even close to weak. This is dance music that should please fans of the genre while drawing in people who don't usually like that style.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2017  Volume 6 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Firedance
The mix of electronic music, modern prog rock tendencies and more on this is so cool. The vocals are amazing. I absolutely love the bass work, too. This song is not even my kind of thing, but it is so strong. You just can't ignore this one. The message is empowering and the cut really has so much magic built into it.
Come to Me

Much more of an electronic dance cut, this isn't as powerful musically as the opener was. That said, the vocals still make this special. Besides, it has a great energy and drive.

Who We

A bit more rhythmic and less melodic than the previous two cuts. The soulful vocals really steal the show on this number. It's another great example of how dance music can be raised to a new level of class in this modern age.

Back to Life

There is a bit of a jazzy texture here mixed with the electronic dance music. This is energized, catchy and classy.
