Shindig review:
Let us step into London for a quartet of delightfully different troupes. Dark, esoteric French folk-pop isn’t something you find in Camden pubs every night of the week. And for that reason we must salute Firefay, four Anglo-French Londoners who are inspired by late ‘60s/early ‘70s acid folk, Arabic fusion, gypsy music, Jacques Brel and Robert Wyatt amongst many others. Circulus are counted amongst their friends, but Firefay are essentially a more cerebral version of them. Some tasty Middle-Eastern flavour is provided with the liberal use of the oud alongside the chiming acoustics and cellos. Light some candles and chill out with this wonderfully oddball gang.

Bio

Firefay is a dark, esoteric French folk-pop which was inspired by late ‘60s/early ‘70s acid folk, Arabic fusion, gypsy music, Jacques Brel and Robert Wyatt amongst many others. Songs sung in English and French investigate subjects as diverse as English faery traditions, New Orleans voodoo to Khat chewing in West London. The musicians involved have a lot of emphasis on musicianship but with passion and rawness: A sub project called Firefay Collective has added to this esoteric flavor a more psychedelic and latin feel. An Ep called "6" will be ready by March 6th on Discerning Gentleman Records.
