Swanky low riding rock n roll with a heavy blues edge sinks deep into the tarmac as Follower peels open like a brightly coloured fruit. Human guitars, filled with organic warmth and a light distortion which roughs up the surface of sound, pen neat and melodic chord and scale riffs which enliven an atmosphere of easy going and uplifting fun. Vocals swagger around the corridor of rock in cool and well elocuted lines. This short and jumpy song feels like a fundamental piece in a jigsaw of tracks which builds a picture of the band in some crazy epic pose.
Their off the wall New Orleans influenced sound mingled with the California sunshine of their home town has merged in the groove to form a fantastic American sound. Elements of Guns n Roses and Nirvana creep in with simplistic progressions matched with intricate melodies while the original sounding songsmith style allows us to appreciate FireBug for what they really are. Their world tours have shown them to thousands of fans who already enjoy their interesting and palatable rendition of this classic combination of instruments. Playing alongside Iron Maiden, Iggy and The Stooges, and The Cult has associated Firebug with just the right energy and fan-base their competence deserves.
