The Fireworks – Runaround (Shelflife, 2013)


The Fireworks are my favorite new indiepop band. Fuzzy pop songs well crafted in the old school style. Highly recommended!!

[SHELFLIFE] Shelflife presents the second 7″ release from The Fireworks with “Runaround” b/w “With My Heart” and “Asleep” coming November 26th. Limited to 300 copies, the first 100 will be available on transparent red vinyl, exclusively on

The Fireworks have been busy since their debut EP in March. They have enlisted Shaun Charman (The Popguns, The Wedding Present) as their new drummer and together been playing numerous shows around the UK including the Indietracks Festival, the Nottingham Pop Alldayer and supporting The Wedding Present in Brighton. And last but not least they’ve managed to record three fantastic new tracks for this single.

Fans of their debut EP will be pleased to know the band continues right where they left off — delivering intoxicating head-bobbing noise pop. “Runaround” and “With My Heart” feature Emma on lead vocals surrounded by layers of fuzz and feedback with the usual Firework’s flare for crafting perfect two minute pop songs. The third track “Asleep” is a lovely closer featuring Godfrey Salmon on viola alongside Matthew’s whistful vocals. We’re super excited for this release and can’t wait to hear what they have in store for us in the new year.

For fans of: Razorcuts, Henry’s Dress, The Shop Assistants, Meat Whiplash, early Primitives, Buzzcocks, The Frenchmen
