FlashFires – Manshark – Single Review

The English indie quintet Flashfires released their latest single on the 7th.

FlashFires - Manshark


FlashFires do not try and complicate their music with anything extraneous. Manshark is a four and a half minutes track that brims with confidence and swagger.

Manshark is a track to enjoy either whilst nodding just head in time, or stepping around the room as the quintet provide a track that has some very smartly taken beat shifts, taking the number from off-beat to on-beat without missing a step. There is plenty of melody to keep the ears happy, whilst sufficient impetus to keep the body moving. Guitars are extended in well considered closing refrains, whilst the song opens with a drum that kicks the audience into activity. The vocal switches give the piece different tonality, which matches the progression of the music.

Manshark is a track to add to the good mood party playlist and marks the continued development of FlashFires who are deservedly gaining greater traction and appreciation.
