mp3: "Fire" - Special Explosion
This Friday, Special Explosion will release their debut LP To Infinity, but ahead of that they're sharing the emotional and powerful lead single "Fire". This track is special and spellbinding, its continual unveiling and addition of new elements making for near 4-minutes of undeniable bliss and surprise. The single begins softly, with a slow hum of instrumentals and a sparse set of keys backing a repetitious verse that sets the stage. Before you realize it, another voice joins the call, and more instrumentals make their way into the fold. A booming guitar and crisp percussion all find their way into the tapestry, weaving a chilly tale of ignored calls, a desperation to feel. You're forced to hold tight and ride along as the emotion gradually fades away, leaving you with a resounding and noticeable silence.
