Made up of former members of The Village Green, Portland, OR based Light for Fire has drawn comparisons to Spoon, M. Ward, Blitzen Trapper and a handful of other indie-folk acts making the rounds. While flattering, don’t let these comparisons fool you, Light For Fire retains their own fuzzed out, upbeat flavor of folk rock.
Their debut album is an expression of a summer J. Nicholas Allard, the lead singer, spent in Brooklyn. He wrote most of the lyrics on a plane ride back to Portland.
Listen to their single “NY (By The Hand)”.
