Take a look back at some of the best moments of the extraordinary celebration of all things Fire that was our SXSW 2022 showcase

Kristin Hersh’s side project 50 Foot Wave announce new single ‘Hog Child’, from upcoming album ‘Black Pearl’

50 Foot Wave announce first new release since 2016, new album ‘Black Pearl’, as its title might suggest; an anomaly, a rarity, a gem. The title refers to the neighbourhood in New Orleans where the record was written.

Air Waves signs to Fire Records and Fire Songs. Listen to the new track ‘The Dance’

'The Dance' was recorded at Figure 8 studios in Brooklyn, New York, it features Skyler Skjelset (Fleet Foxes, Beach House), Luke Temple (backing vox, additional arrangements), Brian Betancourt (Hospitality, Sam Evian), David Christian (drums) and Ethan Sass (guitar, synth).

Pictish Trail’s fifth album ‘Island Family’ is out now

'Island Family' is Pictish Trail’s contrarian view of arcadia; a search for the euphoric in the bucolic, bound up in sometimes conflicting ideas and feelings around nature and environment, sincerity and artifice, escapism and belonging. It’s an album about how no man can remain an island, however hard he might try.
