We Start Fires – Hot Metal/Hipshake (CD Review)

We Start Fires are a UK rock outfit from Darlington who are building on the success of recent slots on the Club NME tour as well as support for Nine Black Alps tour. This latest double A-side is a slick blend of classic US college rock and choppy and angular sound of femrock bands like Erase Errata or early Le Tigre.

The sound is perfectly judged and if they are anything like their recordings live then they should put on furiously sweaty and electric show.
