Fire Fences are an energetic 4-piece band from South Wales and are proving to be one of Wales’ most promising and exciting young bands. Since entering the music world, Fire Fences have been making big waves on the indie-rock scene.
Whilst blurring the lines between alt-rock and acoustic sounds, Fire Fences pour their energy into creating vibrant and catchy melodic rock tunes. The four-piece emphasise their versatility by contrasting their heavier songs such as Weather and Eastern Avenue against the smoother sounds of House of Cards and Vessel.
During their short time as a band, Fire Fences have received much prestigious acknowledgement. In 2015, the band were invited out to Los Angeles to record with producer Sejo Navajas and Jose Alcantar (Interscope Records) at 4th Street recording studio in Santa Monica, CA. While in California the band also performed a one-off sold out show at the Los Angeles’ legendary Viper Room.
In 2016, Fire Fences were selected as one of ten specially chosen acts by The Forte Project, a scheme that both recognises and assists in the development of the best in new music emerging from Wales. They also won an impressive £5,000 award in a contest run by music website The Cut, to help them on their already incredible journey.
Early in 2017, Fire Fences were selected by Rising Sounds 2017 as one of the top 10 unsigned bands in the UK. This allowed them to record their newest single ‘Weather’ in the Roundhouse studios in London with producer Alexander Archer. Soon after this, Fire Fences were selected by Captial FM in their SSE Spotlight competition as one of the 3 top unsigned acts of 2017 in Wales. As a result of this the band were invited to play the UEFA Champions Festival in Cardiff Bay on the day of the Champions League final. In addition to this, Fire Fences’ latest single ‘Weather’ has been chosen to feature on the soundtrack to the new NASCAR Heat II video game tha was released in late 2017. Band have been recently chosen for Rising Sounds 2017 and got to record a song in Roundhouse studio in London. They have just won Firestone Battle of the Bands!
Fire Fences have released two successful EP’s, ‘Roses from Dust’ (2014) and ‘Pocket Full of Stones’ (2015). In 2016, the band released a double A-side, ‘In Your Love’ along with ‘Eastern Avenue’. Their latest single to enter the rock scene is Weather, released in July 2017.
