"A Sip of Music - November 2, 2021"

If you liked The Lumineers' "Hey Ho" in 2012, you're probably going to fall for the new single from The Firefolk, a duo based out of Southeast Michigan.

A pure, powerful indie-folk sound that hooks you in just a few seconds, here is "Alisha", their 3rd single released on October 15th.

About the song, the band said: "It's a loose narrative of a man going to sea and leaving a lover behind. As a storm sets in, the lover is afraid that the man met his fate in the storm, but the sailor never intended to return as he loves the sea and the risk."

Our dreams and ambitions sometimes lead us to make sacrifices. And our loved ones who can suffer from it. It takes courage and also a lot of discernment. A song that will therefore speak to all those who are sometimes faced with an almost impossible dilemma.

In a very short format (barely 2:30), The Firefolk (which bears their name very well), take us into a very colorful universe, where the music takes power and where we find ourselves shaking our heads without realizing it. A little gem to add to your folk playlists now. - Indie Music Center

"The Firefolk-Alisha |Les matins de Julien|"

This morning the energy was a little absent and the title Alisha made me want to have a good coffee and take off.

This song contrasts two ways of seeing love, the one that settles with to live together despite the constraints, and the one that lets the other live their passions. Basically, should the freedom of a Being be above the passions of love?

In this story the sailor goes to sea knowing that he will not return, because the love of risk and navigation is much stronger than the desire to settle down with someone. This song raises a paradox: love is something very selfish when shared. - Direct Actu


Representing the Indie-Folk scene, The Firefolk is an American group that has been enchanting everyone with its simplicity and especially on its broad themes and harmonic soundscapes, which coincide with their own feelings at the time of creation.

The Firefolk project began in 2021, with the unprecedented release of the work “Bones”, a song that was very well received by the public, giving them a taste of artistic victory.

“Alisha” was released this Wednesday, and has already caused a stir in the scene, for presenting a soundscape never heard before. Having built the sound, the duo shows their songwriting talent, thus delivering sincere and appreciable verses. Check it out now at the link below: - Roadie Music
