The loud crack of a broken stick made his trembling hand crumple together like a leaf in the fire: and at the sound and the pain, scalding tears were driven into his eyes. -James Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist
Rich in lyrical complexities and stylish poetics, A Leaf in Fire pulls no punches in the fight against cliche'd rock. Embracing music as a method of storytelling through memorable riffs and rhymes, the Long Island quintet pursues catchiness without being conventional. With six original songs completed and possible tours in their future, A Leaf in Fire fans can expect shows to be full of the same energy and passion that the band puts into their writing. Expect songs to be imbued with musical intricacies, from the punchy bass riffs and powerful drum beats, to the uncompromising resonance of dual guitars. Compelling sounds and structures then lay the foundation for deeply thematic and often picturesque lyrics.
