NEW SINGLE - LOVE THE THUNDER
The Scholars pull no punches and are producing very tight, inspiring and innovative tunes. This is a huge sounding, verging nicely on epic and anthemic, track. Those backing vocals are pitched so perfectly too. It's big and catchy and contains a wonderful mix of sounds. I'll be playing Love The Thunder on podcast #13 and will be sure to write up a brief review of Friday's gig soon after that too. Now, before moving on to the next, enjoy the video above then get clicking to buy your copy of this cracking song. Then you may proceed at your leisure. Although, actually you will be wanting more of these guys I expect! In that case check out all their dates and stay updated via their official pages at Facebook and Myspace AND there's more. Listen Again via BBC iPlayer to their feature and interview on BBC Oxford Introducing for a personal insight into what they've been up to and what's to come.

Their sound is so huge and epic and perfect alternative rock! Yes there is a lot out there at the moment. A lot of really great stuff but I must admit even so, Lightfire are so high up there when it comes to quality in this part of the unsigned market it is a crime they are not actually signed! What are these record companies waiting for??
I will most certainly be covering more on this band because their music is the type that makes life feel so amazing even if reality sucks. They're the kind to really get you through the blues and realize that hey, you know what? Life is pretty damn fine to be fair. There's also a lyric video for this track.
Kings is a nicely upbeat kind of track with a real driving rythmn to it that screams, 'jig to me and sing along NOW'! The lyrics show Sukh's already strong songwriting talent as he admits drawing on elements of Austrian nuerologist and psychiatrist Victor Frankl's "mans search for meaning" in his thought process. As a former philosophy student and someone still very much interested in Existentialism, this type of contemplative songwriting strikes a powerful chord with me. I can rarely be unimpressed when musicians put such thoughts to music. It is almost like the results provide something profound in and of themselves. I've listened to the album in full a few times now and it is a real treat. The songs are so musically beautiful, like st cats and to the lighthouse. I wish I had time to write a review here but sadly, I don't. I really hope I'm able to get one up for this because I need to share more thoughts on such an amazing debut.
I will also try and get a few question across to his PR peeps and hopefully post the answers with the album review.
