Flares hits us with their new single ‘Lightning’

Just as we thought Flares couldn’t impress us anymore following their sold out show at The Sunflower Lounge, the barely-sixteen, four-piece, Birmingham-based indie band hits us with ‘Lightning’ – a hand clapping, shoulder popping, infectious single – and we LOVE it!

Listen for yourself!


Flares will follow this release with a performance at The Castle & Falcon as one of the best Birmingham bands chosen to be a part of the BBC Introducing & Birmingham Promoters Showcase. Want to watch them live? Tickets are available here.

‘They’ve somehow channelled the Pixies skewed pop, (bassist Edie like a young Kim Deal), welded it to Nirvana’s intensity, (Guitarist Leo channelling Cobain, hurling himself around like it’s life or death) and then added an infectious Pop charm all of their own.”Louder Than War

“Don’t let their youthfulness deceive you. These young indie rockers know their way around harmony and a chord progression.” – Indie Midlands

“A true pleasure to witness.”Native Magazine

“Their catchy, guitar-heavy tunes have the growing crowd clapping and swaying along in no time.” – Counteract

“Too loud.”Leo’s mum
