With a sound similar to Chvrches, Lady Gaga and Christine & The Queens, among others, Leeds-based band Park Fires -- Rachel Lissenburg & Emma Duffy -- have already earned themselves support from the likes of Metro Radio and BBC Introducing.
Having formed in 2014 and started their career gigging in their home city of Leeds before spreading their wings and performing around the UK, the electro-pop duo have created an array of pure pop melodies and soundscapes designed to capture the hearts and minds of those who listen to them. Since then, the pair have performed at several festivals and received immensely positive coverage from media outlets around the world.
With so many releases in recent months having had no real power, heart or inspiration behind them, Park Fires new' single "Dead Beat City" is jam-packed with all three, and the track is a politically-conscious exploration of inequality in society driven by a sweeping disco chorus that's sure to be hard to get out of your head and leave you tapping your toes. The song is particularly meaningful because of the current uncertainty of the UK economy and the suffering and hardships being endured by the citizens of places like Aleppo.
