The single premiered with Clash who called ‘We Are Fire’, “A triumphant alt pop return with a side helping of indie fun, it’s a buoyant and vastly infectious piece of songwriting.” The song was also launched today with great support from Spotify who featured it prominently in their ‘New Music Friday’ playlist.
‘We Are Fire’ is an upbeat indie pop anthem, with triumphant feel-good choruses matched with swaggering guitar lines. Regarding the single Saint Raymond says, “I wrote this song in the midst of touring and festivals madness. ‘We Are Fire’ is an energetic song and I think it epitomises the emotions of the highs and lows and the whole rollercoaster ride I was on at the time with life and music.”
‘We Are Fire’ follows the release of ‘Nightcrawling’, the lead single from the A Light That Blinds EP, which has been receiving early support from Phil Taggart and Huw Stephens at Radio 1.
Elsewhere on A Light That Blinds Saint Raymond incorporates driving guitars on the reflective love song ‘Young’ and his thoughtful songwriting reverberates around the cavernous indie anthem ‘Last Time’.
A Light That Blinds shows a mature depth to Saint Raymond, with his sound honed from his experiences playing arenas across the country supporting Ed Sheeran and gives a taste of more exciting things to follow for the acclaimed Nottingham singer.
